Ingredients for Filling
2 duck legs
100ml white cooking wine
25g candied orange peel
90g onion, roughly chopped
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 large garlic clove, peeled and roughly chopped
Ingredients for Dough
250g plain flour, sieved
135ml warm water
¼ tsp salt
2½ Tbsp olive oil


½ tsp ground allspice
2 bay leaves
½ tsp dry marjoram
½ tsp dry thyme
½ tsp dry ginger
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper


15g flat parsley, chopped


10g flat parsley, chopped


1 For the Duck Filling
Score the duck skin with a sharp knife, then rub in spices marinade mix with olive oil and let it marinate overnight.
2 Preheat oven 180°C/160°C fan/gas4. Place the duck in a roasting dish and roast in the oven for 11⁄2 hours.
3 Remove from oven then leave to cool before shredding the meat. Place in a mixing bowl and set aside.
4 Pour the remaining roasting juices into a pan, add onion, garlic, candied orange peel and white wine. Bring to a boil and simmer until reduced to a thick mixture. Blend it to a paste and mix with shredded duck.
5 Add the Premium Oyster Sauce, and mix well with flat-leaved parsley.
6 For the Pierogi
Place all the ingredients in an electric mixer with a dough hook and knead on a low speed for 15 minutes.
7 Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge to rest for 30 mins. The dough is now ready for rolling.
8 Roll the dough 2mm thin and cut using a 7cm pastry cutter.
9 Place a tablespoon of duck filling in the middle of each pastry disc. Dampen the edges of the disc, then fold over and firmly press to seal the edges to make a pierogi. Place it on a flour-dusted tray and set it aside. Repeat until all the dough is filled.
10 Bring a large pot of generously salted water to the boil. Add the pierogis into the pot, without overcrowding, and boil until they float. Drain and put onto a plate, and drizzle with a little Chiu Chow Chilli Oil and garnish with a sprinkle of parsley. Serve.

2 The pierogis can be fried in clarified butter for extra crispiness, or roasted under the grill brushed with butter.
3 Alternatively, use lentils instead of duck to make the filling vegetarian. 
4 This dish also works well with dark turkey meat.
