    I tried this recipe & followed it exactly. The molasses combined with honey & spices seems to caramelize not the outside of the duck & burned it somewhat. I don't know is this also negated the effects of the ginger/garlic & spice marinade, which did not come through in flavor at all. Any comments or suggestions? I wonder if this would be better roasted, but in deep frying it, the molasses has too much sugar & will always caramelize & burn.

    Great duck recipe that results in a rich moist meat with spice and crispiness on the outside. Just delicious!

    Oustanding and this was great served along with a rice pilaf as you suggested although I used a different variety of chutney. It was the first time I've tried steaming a duck followed by frying, the steaming left plenty of moisture while letting a lot of fat drain leaving the meat really moist but not fatty inside. The final step of frying left the skin wonderfully crisp.
