Duck and Pineapple Thai Red Curry

Duck Thai red curry with pineapple and pak choi

This is such a lovely quick recipe to turn any ordinary evening to a special one! I would cook this dish as a stay at a home dinner date with my husband as it's something you would expect to see at a restaurant but is easily achieved at home!

Cooking duck breast is simple, I decided to pan-fry mine but you could fry the skin and finish it off in the oven too. When pan-frying it is important not to add any oil. Place the duck skin down with no oil and it will fry when the fat starts to melt away.

Cooking with pineapple is common in Thai cuisine and adding chunks to this dish will lift the flavours even further. And of course, I always need a bit of green on my plate, so I served with pak choi!
