If you dislike overcooked, dry salmon, you'll absolutely love this recipe - because it's cooked perfectly every single time. The salmon is cooked at 40ºC for 30 minutes, and because it's cooked in a miso and mirin marinade, it's also packed with flavor.

Ingredients for 2

  • 1 (12-ounce) skinless salmon fillet, halved lengthways

  • 1/4 cup miso paste

  • 2 tablespoons mirin

  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • Sesame seeds

  • Steamed rice or an Asian-inspired salad, for serving

Directions

  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 104ºF (40ºC).

  • Step 2

    Place the salmon in a large zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Add the miso, mirin, and brown sugar. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the moist setting.

  • Step 3

    Place the bag in the water bath and set the timer for 30 minutes.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 1

      When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Gently remove the salmon from the bag and discard any remaining cooking liquid.

    • Step 2

      Heat oil in a medium non-stick skillet over high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the salmon and sear until well-browned on top and bottom, about 1 minute total. Transfer to a cutting board.

    • Step 3

      Slice salmon into 1/2-inch-thick pieces (optional), top with sesame seeds, and serve with rice or a salad.
