Cooking Instructions

Before we get to the recipe, let's talk about cutting up the duck.

My grocery store didn't have duck in stock, so I asked them to order a couple for me.

They came in whole and frozen.

I let my duck thaw, and it then took me about 5 minutes to cut it up using my trusty Kmart shears?not a big deal.

However, if you'd prefer, you could ask the nice meat guys at your grocery store if they could order you a cut-up duck, or alternately, let the duck thaw there and cut it up for you.

If you choose this last option, however, don't take your duck home and refreeze it?just arrange for it to be ready to pick up the day you want to cook it.

Okay, time to cook your duck! Light a charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill.

Mix together the soy sauce, orange marmalade, orange extract, Splenda, garlic, ginger, and vinegar in a bowl.

Tear off 4 sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, each big enough to wrap one of your pieces of duck.

Put a piece of duck on a piece of foil and bend up the edges enough that the sauce won't run off.

Spoon about 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of sauce over the piece of duck, smear it around a little with the back of the spoon, and wrap the foil around the piece of duck?fold opposite edges to the middle, roll down, and then roll the ends in.

Repeat with the remaining 3 pieces of duck and pieces of foil.

Grill the duck packets over a medium fire for about 40 minutes, turning halfway through.

In the meantime, toast the sesame seeds by putting them in a small, dry skillet and shaking them over a hot burner until they start to make little popping sounds.

Remove from heat.

Okay, 40 minutes is up.

Retrieve the duck from the grill and carefully unwrap each piece.

Put the unwrapped duck back on the grill skin-side down for 5 minutes or until the skin is crisp.

Remove to serving plates, top each with 1 tablespoon (8 g) of sesame seeds, and serve.
