Poached Salmon Salad with Potatoes and Hard Boiled Eggs
If your oven has a large perforated pan you can cook the potatoes, eggs and green beans all on the same pan. Begin by cooking the potatoes and eggs and set the timer for 12 minutes. Then add the green beans and salmon to the oven and set the timer for another 8 minutes. The salmon is best cooked in a small solid pan or on a rimmed ¼ size baking sheet.
1 - piece salmon, approx 1lb
1 - small lemon, halved, one half sliced
¼ - teaspoon herbs de Provence
1lb - small red or golden potatoes, cut into quarters
2 - large eggs
½ - lb French style green beans
¼ - red onion, finely minced
½ - cup Mediterranean black olives
4 - tablespoons olive oil
1 - tablespoon red wine vinegar
½ - teaspoon Dijon mustard
Sea Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Serves 4 - 6
Begin by steaming the potatoes and eggs, place them in the solid pan and set the timer for 12 minutes. Meanwhile, trim the green beans and prepare the salmon.
Place the sliced lemons in a small solid pan and add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan, add the salmon and season with the herbs and a sprinkle of kosher salt. After 12 minutes add the green beans to the perforated pan and slide the solid pan with the salmon into the oven.
Set the timer for 8 minutes and cook until the potatoes are tender, and the green beans crisp tender and the salmon just set. Immerse the eggs into cold water to cool them down.
Let the potatoes cool slightly before combining with the chopped onion and the dressing while still warm. Fold in the green beans and olives then peel the eggs and cut into quarters.
Place the potatoes and vegetables in a shallow serving bowl, scatter the cherry tomatoes on top and garnish with the eggs.
The salmon can be served on the side or flaked and combined with the vegetables.

BBQ Pulled Turkey
Turkey pieces slowly braised in a homemade BBQ sauce then pulled off the bone and served with cornbread or soft rolls is a delicious easy dish to prepare and a perfect dish for entertaining. This dish can be cooked covered in Convection or uncovered in the Steam oven.
The homemade BBQ sauce is also key to achieving great flavor with this recipe so begin by preparing the BBQ sauce and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, season the turkey pieces and set them aside to absorb the flavors. Even though the skin is discarded when shredding the turkey, braising the turkey with the skin on does add to the fat content but most importantly it adds great flavor.
For the BBQ sauce
2 tbsp butter + 1tbs oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Combine the following ingredients
3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
¾ cup ketchup
1 Tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp dry mustard powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 cup water
For the turkey
2 bone-in turkey thighs or a combination of bone-in leg and thigh or leg and breast
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp chipotle chili in adobo sauce (optional)
A large oven-safe pan or Dutch oven is ideal for preparing the sauce then you can just put the turkey pieces into the sauce and transfer the pan to the oven. Otherwise, prepare the sauce in an oven safe casserole, and add the turkey pieces.
Saute the onions in the butter and oil over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook gently for a few minutes then add the remaining sauce ingredients that you have combined. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, season the turkey pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.
Heat the oven, Convection Bake 325F (163C) or Steam Braising 325F (163C).
Add the turkey pieces to the BBQ sauce and stir in the Chipotle Chili pepper if using. These peppers add a wonderful touch of smokey heat to the sauce. Place the pan in the oven (covered if using Convection) and cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is very tender and easily falls off the bone.
In order to “pull” the turkey remove the pieces from the hot sauce and set aside to cool. Remove the skin, discard the bones and shred the meat by hand or with a fork and knife. Return to the pulled turkey to the sauce and reheat if needed before serving.
