Confit, most commonly preserved goose or duck, can also be a condiment similar to a pickle, as it is here.

  1. 1 pound small or medium shallots, peeled
  2. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  3. 12 coriander seeds
  4. 6 whole black peppercorns
  5. 2 garlic cloves, halved
  6. Zest of 4 lemons, julienned
  7. Juice of 2 lemons

  10. 1 thyme sprig
  11. 1 parsley sprig
  12. 1 teaspoon sugar
  13. 1 large scallion, julienned
  14. Salt
  1. In a medium saucepan of boiling water, blanch the shallots for 3 minutes; drain. Return the shallots to the pan, add the oil, coriander seeds, peppercorns, garlic, lemon zest and juice, celery, bay leaf, thyme, parsley and sugar and simmer over moderately low heat, stirring a few times, until the shallots are very tender, about 30 minutes. Fold in the scallion and season with salt.
