Disclosure: I received a SousVide Supreme and Vacuum Sealer for review. All opinions expressed are forever and always entirely my own.
We survived! Or should that be written “We survived?”.
That statement could go either way for me. On the one hand, my Thanksgiving was a HUGE success (thanks Mom for all your help!). But on the other hand, I feel like I’ve been to the dentist, the DMV and just tried to return something at Walmart on the day after Christmas. Or to put it more succinctly: I’m pooped.
So today I plan to cozy up at home and mess around with all my leftovers. But since I’m not particularly excited about the idea of standing over my stove or dirtying more dishes (there is still a looming pile from yesterday!), I’m going to be relying heavily on my SousVide Supreme. I am certainly thankful to have one of these babies on days like today!
Cooking seafood sous vide is a total dream. Sometimes I’m less than confident when it comes to cooking seafood, because it can go from perfectly cooked to overcooked in a hot second. But with sous vide cooking, you select the exact temperature that you want your foods to achieve, so it’s almost impossible to overcook something. And I really can’t stand when my house smells all fishy (I have weird associations with food smells sometimes). But no stinky fish odor here! Everything is vacuumed sealed and contained in a nice, neat little package! Easy peasy.
I created a quick marinade for the salmon with some leftover cranberry sauce, cranberry juice and a little bit of store bought BBQ sauce. I used my Molded Cranberry Sauce in this recipe, but a chunkier cranberry sauce would work too (if it’s REALLY chunky, you might want to give it a whirl in your food processor or blender first). After marinating, I cooked the salmon fillets perfectly in my SousVide Supreme and then popped them under the broiler for a minute to give the tops some color. Like I said. Easy peasy.
If you don’t have a SousVide Supreme, you can certainly bake the marinated salmon in the your oven. BUT this is a GREAT time to buy a one if it’s something you’ve been considering. Because RIGHT NOW, the awesome folks at SousVide Supreme are having a Black Friday Deal. You can get a FREE Vacuum Sealer ($129.00 value!!) with any purchase of a SousVide Supreme water oven made between now and 12/02/14. How sweet is that?
