Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Armagnac
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cranberry syrup
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped
  • Pinch freshly ground coriander
  • Pinch freshly ground pepper
  • 16 ounces foie gras of duck, sliced into scallops
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups duck broth or chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper

Method

Step 1

Combine the Armagnac, maple syrup, cranberry syrup, thyme, coriander, and pepper. Marinate the foie gras scallops for 6 to 8 hours in the refrigerator. Remove the foie gras from the marinade and reserve marinade.

Step 2

In a very hot saute pan, pan-fry foie gras for approximately 1 minute each side until golden brown. Salt lightly and place on a serving platter. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before serving to bring to room temperature.

Step 3

In a saute pan over medium-high heat, add the butter and melt. Add the shallots and saute until translucent, about 2 minutes. Deglaze with white wine and cook until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the duck broth and reduce by 1/3. Add the reserved marinade, maple syrup, and fresh cranberries. Reduce until mixture thickens and then puree until velvety smooth. Add the lemon juice and salt and pepper, to taste.

Step 4

Pour sauce over foie gras scallops and serve.
