Description

Restaurant style duck with a side of bulgur and dried fruit come together to create a delicate blend of flavors. Turmeric, prunes, and figs pair with the soy and Worcestershire sauces for a balance between sweet and spicy seasonings. Naturally soft flavored duck is enhanced by the soy sauce glaze coupled with the soft pearly texture of bulger, spiced with herbs from the Middle-East. Finely sliced duck served with a perfectly circular serving of bulgur will have everyone in awe.
