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.

Steaming bone-in chicken*, yields two great results. Succulent chicken that can be used for salads or sandwiches or added to pizza or a stir-fry as well as some flavorful chicken stock. The flavor of the stock will be determined by the type of aromatics and seasoning you add to the pan. This recipe uses onion, celery, carrot, bay leaf and mixed Italian seasoning.
*This is an old video that I am publishing as a recipe. And, yes, the logo is different, but the essence is the same! I hope you enjoy the video and learn more about the benefits of using a Steam oven, also known as a Combi Oven.
1 bone is chicken breast
1 whole chicken leg
1 small onion, peeled and halved
1 small carrot, trimmed and scrubbed
1 celery stick
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp mixed Italian seasoning
3 stalks fresh parsley (optional)
2 cups cold water
Place all the ingredients in the solid pan from the steam oven or in an oven safe casserole dish.
Heat the steam oven in the Steam Mode 212°F.
Place the casserole dish in the oven and set the timer for 45 minutes. The meat should be very tender and falling off the bone. If it's not quite there return it to the oven for 5 - 8 more minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven, carefully remove the cooked chicken pieces and place on a plate to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the skin and discard, shred the chicken by hand or with a knife and fork and discard the bones.
When the stock has cooled discard the aromatics and either refrigerate or freeze the stock for later use.
