Side of Salmon in the Sous Vide

My grocery store a sale on frozen sides of Alaskan sockeye salmon – so I popped the whole thing into the sous vide. (Note that this is a small side of salmon – it weighed about a pound and a half, and was about 18 inches long. We’re not talking about a yard-long king salmon or anything here.) 122°F/50°C for an hour or so to thaw it and cook it through.


  1. I need a rack like that. I use a 12qt round cambro to sous vide.

    So are you going to report on the results of the salmon? Was it as good as cooking a fresh piece? And did you sear it after the SV? I would love to hear about your results! Thanks.


    • It was good – not quite as good as fresh, but very close. I seared it under my broiler after cooking. I need to tinker with it a little, to make sure I have the timings down before I publish it as a recipe…stay tuned.

        Thank you. I will look forward to your recipe when you feel it is worthy to be shared!
