To make the apple balsamic dressing, reduce the apple juice and balsamic vinegar together in a saucepan on low heat, until about half the original amount remains and is pretty thick. Cool.

To cook quail, season with salt and pepper and seal both sides in a hot pan with a little oil, then finish cooking in a moderate oven(180 degrees) skin side down for about 10 minutes

To serve, slice pear thinly and toss with parmesan, rocket and a drizzle of olive oil, serve immediately with hot quail and dressing drizzled on top
