Instructions Checklist
  • Place duck skin and fat in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Cook until fat renders and skin is crisp, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove skin with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate, return pan to stove, and increase heat to medium-high.

  • Stir in potatoes with salt and black pepper. Cover and cook, stirring every few minutes, until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove lid and cook, stirring, until potatoes are well-browned and crispy, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir in green garlic, cover, and cook 2 minutes. Stir until onions are soft and dissolved, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a plate and top with crispy duck skin.

Cook's Note:

The recipe is the easy part, finding duck skin is a little more challenging. Finally, you can go to a butcher that sells whole ducks, and have him break one down for you. Tell them you'd like two nicely trimmed breasts, two leg quarters, and all the excess skin from the rest of the carcass. They will smile knowingly, and say no problem (for extra credit, ask for the bones, which you can roast and make a killer stock).

If you can't find green garlic, regular onions, leeks, shallots, or scallions are all fine substitutes.
