Duck Breast with rhubarb puree

For 4 people:

Duck Breast 2 piece of 8 to 10 oz each

Salt and pepper

Canola Oil for searing

Rhubarb purée

100g of rhubarb

2 star anise

1 vanilla pod, split and seeds reserved

10g of caster sugar

For the purée, wash and roughly chop the rhubarb and combine with the sugar, star anise and vanilla in a small pan

Add enough water to cover and place over a medium heat.

Bring to a simmer and cook until the rhubarb is tender. This should take around 10-15 minutes

Strain the rhubarb, remove the star anise and reserve the liquid.

Add the rhubarb to the blender and blitz until smooth - you may need some of the reserved liquid to achieve the right consistency

Pass the purée through a fine strainer and set aside to cool

To roast the duck:

Score the fat of the duck breast with a knife.

Season the duck with salt and pepper.

Warm sauté pan over medium heat and add duck breast; fat side down. By doing this you will render the fat and have crispy skin.

After the fat has rendered, flip the duck breast and finish in an oven at 375 f for 3 minutes or more depending on the desired meat temperature.
