Prosciutto-Wrapped Duck Appetizers

Duck is available at most supermarkets. Don't overmarinate or the duck will become tough. You can use dove or goose instead of duck, and substitute turkey bacon for the prosciutto.

Prepare grill.

Combine dry red wine, lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, dry mustard, black pepper, and bay leaf in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add duck pieces to bag, and seal. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes. Remove duck from bag, and discard marinade.
