Buying Fresh Tuna for your instant pot tuna confit recipe:

Fresh tuna steaks are delicious grilled or poached like this instant pot tuna confit recipe, but you should buy the freshest tuna you can find in the market. The fresh tuna will be a deep pink to red, and it will be somewhat shiny and moist looking, but not wet. Dullness, browning, or flaking all mean the tuna is older, while fresh tuna will smell a little like the sea but should not have a strong fishy odor. You might want to avoid the strong-flavored brown streak by cutting it out before cooking.
