Slow Roasted 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.

Ingredients

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

Preparation

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 the Combi-steam oven in the Low-Temperature or Combi-steam Mode 180 - 200 degrees. Or heat your Convection oven in the Convection mode to 180 - 200 degrees.


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.

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.

Ingredients

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)

Preparation

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.
