I finally found a recipe to use the star anise xmas gift. Loved the marinade and will definitely use that again. I subbed sherry for the mirin otherwise followed all the instructions and loved it!! Saving this recipe into the make again file.

Wow! This was awesome... The preparation is spread over a couple of days, but it's not too complicated and it's definitively worth all the work. We used mallard legs and showeler breast meat to make the soup, and it turned out better than I could have imagined. Instead of a duck carcass we used chicken (leftover from before), and we did not have any star anise... Who knows how this changes the overall result? Will find out soon because we will make this again for sure. Thanks for posting this!

This was a fantastic recipe. I didn't use the star anise, but that didn't seem to hurt it at all. What flavor! What textures! And not too fatty or gamy. Thank you for sharing. I have always shied away from duck soup but now it will be one of my favorites.
