      This is delicious! I had found some frozen duck leg-quarters on sale for 99¢ each in a closeout freezer at the local store and bought all they had. So I used the leg-thigh pieces instead of just legs. I couldn't find fermented black beans, so used black bean sauce. Also subbed dry sherry for the wine ( I thought I had some in the back of the cupboard, but I was wrong) This is a keeper, and I think chicken thighs or turkey thighs would be great in the sauce too! (adjust cooking times).

      Had this for Christmas Dinner with Polish folks, they raved and raved. I used ground ginger, canned oyster mushrooms and red table wine for the shaoxing.
