  1. For the salad, place the cooked potato, broad beans and asparagus into a bowl and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  2. For the dressing, heat the goats' cheese and cream in a saucepan over a gentle heat until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth. Stir in the basil.

  3. For the duck, wrap each duck strip in half a slice of parma ham.

  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry for 6-8 minutes, or until crisp and golden-brown and the duck is cooked through.
