Confit of Tuna Steak in CVap®

confit tuna steak

Confiting tuna steak gives it a lovely melting texture. But what is confit? In fact, confit involves covering a protein in oil and cooking it. Markedly, this differs from deep-frying because you use a very low temperature. To clarify, deep frying normally requires temperatures between 325 and 450°F. On the other hand, confit is done with an oil temperature of around 200°F or cooler. Truly, CVap® technology delivers incredible temperature precision. Consequently, this is why CVap is perfect to create this easy yet impressive recipe.
