Sous-vide salmon with fresh salsa, green beans, yoghurt-tahini and crispy salmon skin. Sous-vide salmon, if done right, is seriously moist and silky smooth. This recipe is fresh and light and lets the sous-vide salmon shine.

Ingredients for 2

  • 2 (6-ounce) skin-on salmon filets, skin removed and reserved
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 ounces green beans, steamed, for serving

Step 1
Set the BioloMix Sous Vide Cooker to 149ºF (65ºC).

Step 2
Season the salmon with salt and pepper and place each filet in its own zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the moist setting. Place in the water bath and set the timer for 8 minutes.

Step 3
Meanwhile, sear the salmon skin: Heat butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the skin and sear until crisp, 2 to 5 minutes. While searing, press the skins down on the pan with a spatula. Transfer to a paper towel-line plate, season with salt, and set aside for serving.

Step 4
Prepare the tahini yogurt: In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 5
Prepare the salsa: In a medium bowl, mix together the tomato, cilantro, avocado, red onion, lime juice, and remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
