Shi Hu Duck

2/3 c Soy sauce
1 Duck; rinsed and dried
7 c Vegetable oil
3 Green onions; chopped
4 Thin-slice rounds fresh ginger
3 tb Hoisin sauce
6 Pieces star anise
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Msg
1 1/2 ts Sugar
1 1/2 ts Cornstarch
1 ts Sesame oil
1/2 c Broccoli florets
1/2 c Snow peas
1/2 c Sliced bamboo shoots
1/2 c Sliced carrot

Spread 1/3 cup soy sauce on the duck. Heat 6 cups oil in a wok or heavy-bottomed dutch oven & deep-fry the duck over high heat, turning occasionally to have equal browning all around. When duck is golden brown all around, remove from oil & drain. Strain & reserve oil for future use. Mix together chopped green onions, sliced ginger, remaining soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and anise. Spread this all over the in- side and outside of the duck. Steam duck for 1-1/2 hours. Remove the duck from the steamer and set it aside on a plate, covered with foil to keep it warm. Reserve the steaming liquid. In a medium bowl, mix together the salt, MSG, sugar, cornstarch, and sesame oil. Toss the broccoli, snow peas, bamboo shoots, and carrot in the cornstarch mixture. Heat the remaining 1 cup vegetable oil in the wok. When the oil has heated, quickly stir-fry the coated vegetables in the oil over high heat until the broccoli turns bright green. Remove from the oil, drain briefly, and pour over the duck. Serve immeadiatly, carving the duck at the table and being sure to give each person a portion of the vegetables.
