  5. Sear the duck on all sides for a total of about 3 minutes.
  6. Pour 1/2 cup of the wine over the duck and cook until evaporated.
  7. Add 1 can of the coconut milk and bring to a boil.
  8. Turn the heat to medium low, cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes until duck is tender and cooked through.
