Chicken, Orange and Ginger Sausage

Postby DanMcG » Thu Feb 18, 2016 9:21 am

After watching what seems like endless food programs on tv where they add orange or lemon zest to a recipe I figured it was time to use some in sausage. There's not a whole lot of orange sausage recipes out there so I winged it with this, which came out pretty good, then the wife tweaked it to her liking and it's a solid hit.

If anyone is interested there is a Greek sausage, Loukaniko that uses orange that sounds good, but this one is sort of asian-ish.




Orange and Ginger Sausage


Weight in grams

Chicken thighs, skinless 1400
Salt 25
Orange zest 5
Garlic 4.2
Ginger, ground 2.1
Black Pepper 2.8
Reduce orange juice 75ml

After the test fry the better half requested ;

Ginger paste 7.5
Hot pepper 1.7
Fennel 2.5
Basil, fresh 8+/-

Zest an orange to make 2 teaspoons of zest. Add the juice of 2 oranges to a pot and reduce to about half. ( I want the orange flavor but not the extra liquid).
Grind chilled chicken with fine plate.
Add seasoning to orange juice and mix with ground chicken until you get a good bind.
These were stuffed into 24-26 sheep casing and linked into 7” hotdog's

Note's;
I used maybe half of the chicken fat and I think even less would be better.
The orange was noticeable but next batch will have maybe half as much more.
Fennel was added with the basil to give it a Thai basil flavor. ( that’s what wifey said, and she has taste buds)

These were pretty colorful so I got carried away with pic's.;

3 lb rope;

If ya look real hard you can see the orange.

And lastly frying a few up for dinner;

Still working on the homemade bun gig, they're getting better but I guess I wasn't meant to be a baker

Now, credit where credit's due, they look great.

But, I'm afraid that orange with any other meat but duck ...and even then only under duress... just isn't for me.

...but then, these really look tempting.

Mmm...

I like the orange idea but I'm gonna wait until I can grow some fresh basil before I use that. Did you use fresh garlic? Is your better half Italian? :D
Fashionably late will be stylishly hungry.

Paul, the garlic was the minced store bought you get in a jar, the wife loves the fresh herbs, so I have basil growing in the basement herb garden along with the sage, thyme and rosemary.
I'm the one with the Italian roots, but the wife can cook Italian almost as good as my Nana did.
