Pomegranate Duck with Walnuts and Rainbow Tabbouleh


This is a really elegant little dinner, pomegranate molasses and duck are an absolutely wonderful combination. Fans of Persian cookery will recognise the combination from the classic slow-cooked pomegranate, duck and walnut fesenjan stew. This version uses quicker-cooking duck breasts, along with a moreish, herby tabbouleh for an easy date night dinner.
