Recipe Inspiration – Pan-seared duck with apple and brussel sprout salad

Serves 4


  • 4 x 200gm duck breast fillets, trimmed and skin scored
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup (60ml) pomegranate molasses
  • 200g brussels sprouts, trimmed and leaves separated
  • 100g red-vein sorrel leaves
  • 2 small red apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice



  1. Preheat oven to 200C. Heat a large ovenproof frying pan over high heat.

  4. Place the brussels sprout leaves, sorrel, apple and lemon juice in a bowl and gently toss to coat.
  5. Divide the duck and salad between serving plates.
  6. Serve drizzled with the pan juices and salt and pepper.
  7. Serve immediately.
