Duck, Andouille, And Scallion Pancakes With Ginger Orange Sauce


  • Ginger Orange Sauce:
  • 1 large orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 cup veal stock or dark chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pancakes:
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup shredded cooked duck meat
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) chopped andouille sausage
  • 1 teaspoon Essence of Emeril
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Garnish:
  • 2 tablespoons shaved chives


  • For the sauce: Measure out enough orange sections to make 1/2 cup. Squeeze the juice from the remainder of the orange into 1/2 cup of sections. In a saucepan, combine the orange sections and juice with the ginger. Stir in the stock, cilantro, sesame seeds, sesame oil, sugar and salt and bring to a boil. Cook, whisking to break up the orange, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • For the pancakes: In a bowl, whisk the egg, milk and flour, together. Whisk in the onions and green onions and the garlic. Stir in the duck meat, andouille, Essence and salt. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet. When the oil is hot, spoon out the batter to form 2 1/2-inch pancakes, cook until golden brown, for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Place 2 pancakes on a plate and drizzle with 1/3 cup of the sauce. Garnish with shaved chives.
