Low Temperature Roast Salmon
This technique works well with any meaty fish, just take care not to hurry the searing step by turning the fish too soon, otherwise, it will stick to the pan. If your Combi-steam oven doesn’t have a dedicated Low-Temperature mode then just use Combi-steam 180 - 200 degrees. For best results in a Convection oven use the Convection mode 180 - 200 degrees.
2 fillets of meaty fish such as salmon, halibut, sea bass or wild cod
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp olive oil
½ lemon, juice only
Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel and season with your preferred seasoning and a sprinkle of Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper.
Heat an ovenproof skillet over moderate heat and when hot add the butter and oil. Carefully lay the fish into the pan and let it cook undisturbed for a few minutes. Gently lift one corner and if the fish releases easily then carefully turn each piece.
Now place the pan in the heated oven and cook for 6 - 8 minutes. Center cuts of very meaty fish may take up to 15 minutes to cook through. Don’t hurry the process the results are worth waiting for.
Squeeze the lemon juice over the fish and baste with the pan juices before serving.

Combi Steam Whole Fish
When steaming whole fish in the Combi-Steam oven, select the solid pan or use an oven-safe casserole dish. Then add the aromatics you wish to use to flavor the fish together with just enough water to cover the base of the pan and maybe even a splash of wine if appropriate. The cooking time will be a little longer than when fish is steamed over boiling water, but the succulent results are well worth the extra 8 - 10 minutes of cooking time.
Cooking the Fish
2 whole tilapia or striped sea bass, scales and fins removed
1” piece of fresh ginger, thinly sliced
2 scallions, thinly sliced into 2” long diagonal strips
1 lemon, thinly sliced
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
Serving the Fish
1 small red Jalapeno chili pepper, cut into very thin circles
2 scallions, thinly sliced into 2” long diagonal strip
4 tbsp sesame oil, heated
Heat the oven in the Steam mode, 100% Humidity, 212 Degrees
Pour about ¼ - ½ a cup of water into the solid Combi-Steam oven Pan.
Cut a few diagonal slits in the fish and place the fish in the prepared pan.
Place the lemon and ginger slices in the slits and put any remaining slices in the belly together with the scallions.
Pour the soy sauce over the fish then drizzle the sesame oil over the fish. Place in the oven and cook for 15 - 20 minutes until the fish flakes easily from the bone.
Place the fish on a platter and sprinkle the reserved scallions and chili pepper over the fish.
Heat the sesame oil until sizzling then pour it over the fish.
