Sous Vide Salmon Recipes


If you are interested in experimenting with sous vide cooking, Salmon is a great way to get started.

Salmon, and most fish, only need to be cooked for a short amount of time, normally 10-20 minutes. This makes it easier to keep the temperature constant without expensive sous vide equipment. Sous vide salmon also has a drastically different texture than normal salmon.

As with many sous vide foods the temperature you use to cook the salmon creates differences in the texture of the finished product. Most chefs recommended sous vide salmon cooking temperature is 50C / 122F but some people prefer the sous vide temperature of 45C / 113F.

Almost all salmon sous vide recipes call for it to be cooked for 10 to 20 minutes.
