Confit Cod With White Asparagus Foam

The confit is a French technique that consists in submerging food into fat a temperature below 100°C for an extended period of time. ⁠The cod is perfect for this method of cooking because the meat gets very tender and melts in your mouth. The asparagus foam, made with the Smartwhip system, adds a fresh and light character to the dish with a vegetable touch.⁠
