Ingredients for 2

  • 2 1/2 cups water

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 (8- to 10-ounce) skinless salmon fillet

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced

  • 7 tablespoons crème fraiche

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 10 to 20 toasts or crackers, depending on size, for serving

    Meanwhile, set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 113ºF (45ºC).
