use a link-exploration software, like Xenu

crawl the website (5-6 levels will usually suffice)
set the software to ignore all the links except the domain you are interested in (for faster execution)

hit play.

alternatively - if you know what the anchor text is for the link you could use the inanchor:- operator to find/look for the link. Is usually faster, but not as accurate as crawling the website.

Xenu is your best bet to crawl and find all the out-going links and then you can put it up in some excel sheet and perform searches.

A google query can be used to return websites linking to yours:

(change 'yourdomain.com' to your domain)

You can also set up a Google alert for the same query:
