  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp pomegranate molasses
  • 1 cup salad leaves such as watercress, rocket, radicchio or baby frisee

Remove from heat and allow to rest in a warm place.

Cut figs in half and grill for a minute until browned. Meanwhile make a dressing with the oil, vinegar and pomegranate molasses. Toss the salad leaves in the dressing and season with salt and pepper.

To serve 

Slice the duck breasts and arrange on the salad leaves with the figs. Drizzle with a little dressing and serve.
