Food Network Canada
8 servings





cup pineapple, juice
cup simple syrup
lemon juice, to taste

Carmelized Pineapple

tsp vegetable oil
cup diced pineapple
cup granulated sugar
lb(s) foie gras, Grade A
fleur de sel
lemon juice, to taste
Italian cracked black pepper
balsamic reduction, (recipe follows)

Balsamic Reduction

cup balsamic vinegar


Step 1

In a stainless steel bowl, combine pineapple juice, syrup & lemon juice. Freeze in an ice cream/sorbet machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Step 2

Heat oil in a small nonstick fry pan over medium high heat. Add pineapple & distribute evenly in pan. When pineapple starts to carmelize, sprinkle with sugar & toss. Continue sautéing until pineapple is evenly caramelized. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Slice the foie gras into 8 slices, each about 1 inch thick. Place the slices on a large plastic wrapped plate. Score slices in a criss cross pattern on one side. Season with a little sea salt and freshly ground white pepper on each side

Step 4

To sear, use two 8 inch nonstick fry pans and place on the stove over high heat. When the pan starts to lightly smoke, remove from heat. Carefully place 4 pieces of foie gras in each pan, scored side down, & sear for 1 ½ minutes. Pour off excess fat. Turn over & cook for another minute. Remove from heat & put foie gras onto a clean towel to absorb excess fat. Season with a pinch of coarse salt.

Step 5

In a small pot over medium heat, reduce vinegar to ½ cup. Stir occasionally to ensure the vinegar does not burn on the bottom. Remove from heat & allow to cool. Place in an airtight container & refrigerate until needed.

Step 6

In the centre of a large plate, spoon a little of the caramelized pineapple. Place a piece of seared foie gras on top & sprinkle with a little coarse black pepper. Scoop a quenelle of pineapple sorbet and out on top or to the side. Drizzle a little balsamic reduction around & serve immediately
