Lunch: I sous vide cooked two pieces of sockeye salmon to 49°C (120°F) as an experiment. I found it to be well textured, but a little overdone for our taste. Next time we'll try it at a slightly lower temperature. Tina prepared a lemon penne with olive oil and broccoli with fennel side.

  • How, exactly, is soud vide different from steaming as far as the taste/texture of the food?

  • At 49°C, not much - I think I need to use a lower temperature.
