Roasted Duck W/ Spicy Sauce:

“This is the same recipe that they served at one of my favorite restaurants. One of the waitresses is a friend from way back and gave me the recipe. I have made this for my boyfriend several times. He loves the sauce. I was surprised that my son and his girlfriend also liked this dish. They are both very picky eaters.”
