This canape uses succulent grilled duck breast glazed with pomegranate molasses. Sliced and served on small spiced cauliflower fritters, - this is an appealing combination and always enjoyed for its flavour and unexpectedness. Both the duck and the fritters are very simple to prepare, assemble and keep warm before serving. An extra drizzle of molasses can be used when plated as well as a sprinkle of coriander if desired.
