Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Roast the plums with the rest of the ingredients for 30 minutes, or until tender. Turn halfway through the cooking time.
  2. Meanwhile, prick the skin of the duck breasts, then pour boiling water over them and drain. Slowly brown the skin in a pan over a gentle heat, then turn and briefly brown the other side. Remove from the pan but reserve the fat for another use.
  3. Season the duck, then spread with the rub. Add to the plums and roast – skin-side up – for 5 minutes, or until glazed and bronzed.
  4. To serve, allow the duck to cool to room temperature, then slice thinly. Slice the trimmed lettuce and chicory lengthways into long shreds, then turn onto a platter. Add the duck and the halved or quartered plums. Spoon over enough pan juices to moisten. Serve with the herbed quinoa salad on the side.
