Duck Foie Gras with Apples and Grapes
- 2 lobes fresh duck foie gras (large lobes only)
- fleur de sel
- 1 1/4 teaspoons coarsely black pepper (5 g)
Step 1: Foie Gras
Slice the foie gras into 4 large cutlets, 6 ounces (170 g) each. Season with salt and grill for about 2 minutes per side (check by touching them).
Once cooked, remove the foie gras and drain on a rack or on paper towels, then season with freshly ground pepper and fleur de sel.
Step 2: Sauce
Dice the raw foie gras into cubes, and brown in a very hot large dry pot. Add the green apples, seeded and coarsely chopped.
Cook for several minutes, then add the crushed white grapes, and reduce slightly.
Add 3 1/3 tablespoons (10 cl) of port wine and reduce once more. Moisten with the duck jus and simmer for around 30 minutes.
Season as needed, strain through a chinois, pressing down, and acidify with a dash of sherry vinegar.
