    Default Wor Shu [pressed] Duck

    so we're talking about duck tonight and I say I've cooked it a few
    times, and eaten it in restaurants a few times-- and I've never wanted
    to try it again

    And my wife remembers something that 'sounds like wa suh duck' that
    she had and she like it.

    I think this is it-
    http://www.mangerati.com/steamed-dee...d-pressed-duck

    Aside from deboning a hot duck so it retains its shape, it looks
    pretty simple-- and might remove enough of the duck flavor and
    texture for me to enjoy it.

    I'm not having any youtube luck-- all the deboning videos I see cut
    the duck, and I'm thinking that after a couple hours of steaming the
    bones should come out through the cavity.

    Any advice? I wonder if I can [or dare to] buy a steamed and
    de-boned duck from the Asian market?

    Wor shu op is what I have seen it called.

    Not all recipes call for keeping the duck whole, although that makes
    for great presentation. I have no advice on how to do that, sadly.

    If you don't want the duck flavor and texture, don't buy a duck, buy a
    chicken.

    Or a lettuce.

    Really. Sometimes people want to like something, or want to think of themselves as the type of person who would like a particular thing. My favorite way to eat duck is duck wings from the Chinese take-out joint.

    I love the reddish lacquered look of a Chinese BBQ duck.

    I made fried chicken today, too. Though I made it earlier in the day
    because I don't like it hot, and the later in the day it gets, the less
    I want to cook right now. Mmhhhmmm... cold fried chicken.

    Weird. It's like soaking fish in milk to get rid of the fishy flavor.
    If you don't like a fishy flavor, don't buy a fish.

    Buy a lettuce.

    If I lived alone or cooked for one I'd never consider eating duck
    again. There sure are lots of other foods I *do* like.

    But-- when someone you cook for says they like something--- and it
    looks like you might be able to live with that presentation- then I
    say, go for it.

    >Or a lettuce.


    OTOH-- most of the folks I cook for don't like lettuce, yet I serve it
    often and they works around it.

    Actually, that's often a case of fish going bad.
    Fresh seafood doesn't have much smell.
    If it smells very fishy, throw it out.

    True, but some fish taste fishier -also when fresh- than others.

    I just ate cold fried chicken, with cold mashed up carrots that I had spooned onto some of the oily crispies from the frying pan. If you fry much, you really should consider buying high oleic sunflower oil. It is the most neutral oil I've found, and on par for healthfulness with olive oil.

    Question for you Bryan. I normally use Canola oil which is supposed to be on
    par with olive oil. I've never noticed a taste from that. From your
    research, is Canola oil as healthy? (not that I really care all that
    much...I'll still use it!)

    Doesn't canola oil tend to be genetically modified? If you don't want
    to grow body parts that belong to the opposite sex, better avoid it.
