Duck With Honey-Glazed Pumpkin

Serves 2

Without the skin, duck breasts are low in fat and a good source of iron and B vitamins. It may seem strange to serve the pumpkin with honey and sweet spices when cooking a savoury dish, but try it.

I first ate this intriguing mixture in Boer café in Stellenbosch, South Africa, which is the heart of the wine growing region. Like most wine producing areas, taste and flavour are very important, and these Dutch South Africans know a thing or two about good grub.

2 plump duck breasts cut into thin strips.
2 tbs rapeseed (canola) oil
1 small pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and cut into small cubes
1 tsps ground cinnamon
1 tsps ground cloves
1 tbls runny honey

Pan-fry the duck strips in the oil. Drain on kitchen paper. Keep warm.

Put the pumpkin cubes into the pan with the cinnamon and cloves and stir well. Add two tablespoons of water, cover and simmer gently until the pumpkin flesh is tender - about 10 minutes, then drizzle on the honey and stir again.

Arrange the duck strips on two warm plates; serve the pumpkin on the side with a watercress, mint and onion salad.
