Pepper's Duck Red Curry with Squash

SERVES: 4 PREP: 10 minutes TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

The perfect cozy fall dish.

I like to use skin-on duck breasts here, because you can get the skin browned and crispy in the pan first, then use any leftover duck fat to fry the curry paste and bring out its deep aroma and flavor. But another easy option is to use pre-roasted Chinese duck from any Chinese take-out place and stir it in at the end until warmed through.
