Warm Duck Salad with Orange and Fennel

Warm Duck Salad with Orange and Fennel

 My days have been pretty slow, being sick puts such a downer on your mood. All it takes is some nice produce or more to the point…DUCK to get me excited, now I’m feeling slightly human.This recipe was adapted from  Curtis Stone’s Asian Duck Salad.I love the combination of orange and fennel, the sweetness of the orange cuts through the aniseed flavours of the fennel and they all come together to balance the richness of the duck. Perfect!
It will only takes 30 minutes, cook the duck (or even quicker,buy ready cooked duck breasts), prepare the salad and whip up the dressing. You could use chicken or spatchcock and the dressing will last a couple of days in the fridge.
