Foie Gras Grilled
What to do with those little trimmings off the lobes of that expensive foie gras?
Dredge them in bread crumbs and grill in a pan to catch all that lovely flavor and juice. Grill on both sides just until it loses its pinkness and deglaze the pan with a teaspoon of juice from lemon confit.
If you do not achieve enough liquid for a sauce, add a spoon or two of water. Pour over grilled foie gras and garnish with a julienne of preserved lemon.
Here is a recipe for grilled foie gras from La Varenne's The French Cook, p.93.
#51 Foie Gras on the gridiron
Put it on the gridiron, and powder it with crumbs of bread and salt. After it is broiled, powre the juice of a Lemon upon it, and serve.
Purchase fresh or frozen foie gras from Enjoy Foie Gras.
