2 lbs.), lobes separated
Kosher salt and freshly
ground black pepper,
1/3 cup rendered duck fat
1 tbsp. sweet paprika
8 slices country-style bread, toasted
Coarse sea salt, for garnish
Season foie gras with salt and pepper. Heat duck fat in an 8" skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add foie gras and cook, flipping once, until browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer foie gras to a medium bowl. Remove pan from heat and stir in paprika. Pour hot paprika mixture over liver and let sit until liver warms through, about 5 minutes. Transfer foie gras to a cut-ting board and slice lengthwise into 1/4"-thick slices. Put 2 slices of foie gras on each piece of toast and spoon some of the paprika mixture over top. Season with salt and pepper and serve warm.
