Ba Bao Ya Chinese Duck sure ain’t no Dummy!

Standard

duck1Ba bao ya in Chinese, or dummy in Korean, is a duck stuffed with diced chicken, ham, shrimp, chestnuts, bamboo shoots, scallops and mushrooms stir fried with undercooked rice, soy sauce, ginger, spring onions, and rice wine. This sounds like an Asian version of the popular Southern dish, jambalaya, but baked in the oven. Try some with lettuce and hoisin sauce as a delicious healthy wrap. Perhaps being a dummy, like a baby in Italian, or naïve means bliss in China that leads to 8 treasures.
