Sous Vide is super easy once you get the idea behind slow low cooking. Especially in the Thermomix. You do not need the TM6, perfect in all of them.

  • 1. Place rice into the simmering basket
  • 2. Rinse it with water straight into the Thermomix bowl (over the top of the rice)
  • 3. Steam - approx 30 min, 100°C, speed 3
  • 4. Tip into a large bowl and drizzle with plenty of EVOO while you allow it to cool
  • 5. Move onto cooking the fish
  • 6. Place the fish fillets into a stasher bag or vacuum sealed bag with EVOO, salt, lemon juice and basil
  • 7. Remove as much air as possible and refrigerate for up to 48 hours
  • 8. Add water to the Thermomix bowl
  • 9. Place the stasher bag with the fish in it, into the simmering basket
  • 10. You may need to push it down, but try and keep the fish shape intact as much as possible
  • 11. Cook - approx 40 min, 60°C, speed 2
  • 12. Check that the fish is done by opening up the bag and flaking a piece of fish with a fork
  • 13. If it is soft and breaks easily you are ready
  • 14. Otherwise, add more cooking time in 5 minute increments
  • 15. Set aside (still in the bag) while you prepare the salad
  • 16. Toss the rice with all remaining ingredients and season to taste
  • 17. Add cracked pepper if you wish
  • 18. Serve the salad on individual plates, topped with a piece of fish, then using a microplane, zest the lemon and finely grate plenty of parmesan on top of the salad and the fish
  • 19. Serve immediately
