Sous-Vide Salmon with Lemon and Thyme
Foods that have been vacuum sealed should be cooked within 24 - 48 hours, and the Combi-steam oven is the perfect tool to do so. Once cooked they can be refrigerated for a few days before begin eaten or frozen. Salmon cooks relatively quickly in the sous-vide mode and once cooked the fish can be removed from the bag and broiled before serving. The perfect combination of juicy tender fish with a crisp crust.
1 lb piece boneless, skin-on salmon
2 tbsp olive oil
3 strips lemon peel
3 sprigs thyme
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
Heat the Combi steam oven in the Sous-Vide mode 135℉ degrees.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Place the salmon in a sous-vide safe bag and put the rest of the ingredients over the top. Vacuum seal the bag using the strongest seal.
Place the bag in the perforated pan and cook in the sous-vide mode 135 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, cut open the bag and place the salmon on a rimmed baking sheet.
Change the mode to Broil 450 degrees and place the oven rack in the upper part of the oven close to the broiler. Broil the salmon for 5 minutes until slightly browned and crisped.

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.
