1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. To prepare the ingredients, peel and coarsely chop the pumpkin into small chunks. Core and slice the pear, and flake the Parmesan cheese.

2

Toss the pumpkin in half of the olive oil with salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on a lined oven tray. Cook in the oven for 25 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a bowl and mash well with a fork or potato masher. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3

Meanwhile, combine the rocket leaves, pear, and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and the balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

4

Heat an ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat. Pat the duck breasts dry with paper towel, lightly score the skin in a crisscross pattern and lightly season the skin with salt. Place in the heated frying pan skin side down for 3-4 minutes or until the skin is golden (you don’t need to add any oil). Turn and cook for a further 1 minute. Transfer the frying pan to the oven for a further 8-10 minutes or until cooked to your liking (duck breast can be served pink). Transfer the duck to a plate and cover with foil to rest for 5 minutes. Slice on an angle.

5

To serve, divide the pumpkin puree between plates. Top with the sliced duck breast and the rocket pear salad.
