4 servings


  • 1 whole goose breast
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon coriander seed ground
  • 1/2 tablespoon white pepper


  1. Thoroughly dry the goose breast.
  2. Dust the breast with spices.
  3. Fill the bottom of a plastic container with salt.
  4. Place the breast on the salt.
  5. Cover the entire breast with salt. Cover and refrigerate for two days.
  6. Remove the breast from the salt. Wash thoroughly and pat dry.
  7. Wrap the breast in cheesecloth and hang for a minimum of seven days in a cool room.

To serve, slice thinly across the grain.

The meat will become denser and have a more intense flavor the longer you hang the breast.
