With Dave Coulson of Peace and Loaf

Duck breast with eel, feta, tomato and peach

Ingredients

4 duck breasts

1 fillet smoked eel

8 sundried tomatoes

2ltr chicken stock

200g feta cheese

4 peaches

4 heritage tomatoes

Method

Pan fry the duck breasts skin side down on a medium heat for eight minutes (or until really crisp). Remove from the heat and rest in the pan for 10 minutes (keep warm).

Quarter the tomatoes, cut the peach into segments, season with salt and blow torch (keep warm) – put to one side.

Dice the eel, into small pieces and blend any trim through some mayo (because it’s delicious). Put to one side until ready to assemble.

Reduce the stock by two thirds. Add the diced eel and sundried tomatoes, slice some peach on a mandolin and lightly salt.

Serve as shown.
