using -e syntax and remote rsnyc server

I have setup rsync to run as a deamon exporting one module named home.
when I attempt to use the rsync syntax specified on
rsync -av -e "ssh -l ssh-user" rsync-user at host::module /dest
I get a message from ssh, "bad escape character 'ssh -l username'".
This is an ssh error message, but I am not putting any escape
My goal is to use rsync tunneled over ssh to connect to a remote rsync
I've looked into a backgrounded ssh session with port forwarding, but
it seems rather brittle.
Any pointers on making a secure connection to rsync in daemon mode
would be appreciated.
