mixture. Rub remaining soy sauce over duck skin.

to a boil.

5. Add 1 cup boiling water to bowl in which seasoning mixture had been
blended originally; stir up leftover bits to make a sauce, then pour over

covered, until duck is puffed up and tender (1 to 1-1/2 hours). Meanwhile
wash spinach and remove tough stems.

6. Transfer 1/2 cup duck gravy to another pan and reheat. Add spinach,
stirring to soften slightly. Sprinkle spinach with salt to taste and
transfer to a serving platter. Place duck on top, breast-side up.
