Pat the duck breasts dry with kitchen paper. Score the skin with a sharp knife and season with sea salt and black pepper

Slice the courgettes lengthways and drizzle with half of the oil. Season with salt and pepper and place in the oven

When the duck and courgettes are ready, remove from the oven, cover with foil and leave in a warm place to rest
