For the dressing


  • STEP 1

    Score the skin of the duck breasts in lines close together. Pat dry with kitchen paper, then sprinkle with seasoning. Put in a frying pan, skin-side down, then gently heat until fat starts to run. Increase heat, fry for 15 mins, draining off the fat as you go. Turn over, cook for 5-10 mins on the other side, depending on how well you like it cooked. Remove from pan, then put on a board lined with kitchen paper. Leave to rest while you prepare the salad.

  • STEP 2

    Halve and stone the apricots, then cut into thick slices. Cut cucumber into diagonal slices. Separate the Little Gem leaves, divide between 4 bowls, then scatter over the rocket.

  • STEP 3

    Halve, deseed and dice chillies, then mix with the other dressing ingredients. Thinly slice the duck and divide between bowls, with the cucumber and apricots. Drizzle over the dressing and serve.
