    Dang it somehow I didn't save the finished picture ... The scallops were fantastic 30 min in the Sous Vide Sidekic at 125 degrees then a quick sear. Did the salmon for the same amount of time.

    Not a single left over so that's always a good sign. And discovered the. 2 1/2 yr old loves scallops....

  • Looks good double.   So what was the texture of the salmon?  Was it cooked or raw?  I might try this tonight.  I just found a piece of Alaskan Salmon in the freezer.

    It was cooked stayed nice and moist. Just seared it skin side down for a minute or so.

    Sous vide is a method of cooking when you seal food in vac sealed bags and cook in a tightly temp controlled water bath. You can cook food much more gently and precisely this way then finish it with a sear on the egg or in a pan. Great way to cook lots of different things and you can get some really cool textures by cooking lower. Chicken breast with juices that run out onto your plate when they are cut. Med rare short ribs after 5 days in the bath. It's another tool in the box
