Default Tuna Conserva?

I'm thinking of making something like tuna conserva, starting
with fresh tuna. (Most of the recipes I have googled up
start with an oil-packed can of tuna, to make a conserva-like
item to be served right away.)

My thinking it to braise the tuna slowly, with salt, and a tiny amount
of broth and seasonings, in the smallest Le Crueset I have,
until it is medium-done. Then, tamp it down into a flat
compressed shape, pour a layer of oil on top, and place it
covered into the refrigerator for anywhere from one to three days.

Will this work? Any food safety concerns with this?

Thanks

Steve

Damn, you would ask after I packed one of my newer cookbooks. I do
have a method for it, from the new book, Well Preserved.


The author of that book is Eugenia Bone, who happens to be the
daughter of a well respected Italian cook (and artist), Ed Giobbi. She
was taught to do this from an early age..and the method is in that
book.


Thanks. A little googling turned up her recipe. It involves
the full home-canning trip, with mason jars, a pressure canner,
and a recommended shelf time of six months to develop flavor.

I don't have the necessary equipment or time right now, but maybe
someday.

(There are of course also the potted fish recipes from Elizabeth
David, which probably amount to the same thing...except with goose fat.)
