"This is a great appetizer using wild duck breast. It reminds me of an appetizer I've had at formal gatherings that uses chicken livers." — Annmarie

I served this as a Christmas Day appetizer. I did not have any dry sherry, so I substituted 1/2 dry vermouth and 1/2 sweet vermouth which worked out well. People really enjoyed this appetizer. It is a bit expensive to prepare at $10 per duck breast...but worth it for a special occasion.
Quick and easy snack when the guys stop over.
Made this as a Christmas appetizer. Really enjoyed the contrast of flavors. The fat from the bacon was a great compliment to the lean duck meat. Would definetly recommend!
Good recipe. Unfortunately for me I could not find peanut oil and used sesame seed oil instead. Not sure if that was a good thing or not. The duck was cooked perfectly and I liked the water chestnut texture.
