Low temperature semi-cooked Foie Gras with Fleur de sel ” FORCE BASQUE

Ingredients for 4 people:

Open the lobe of foie gras and sprinkle with Fleur de sel au piment d’Espelette on all sides. Sprinkle all sides with Armagnac. Reconstitute the lobe, wrap it in parchment paper and marinate in a cool place for 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 90 degrees. Set up a large dish with water to make a water bath. Take out the foie gras 1 hour before cooking. Place it in a bowl, pack well, close the lid.
