Fish for sous vide

Preparing a fish fillet perfectly can be so easy. All you need to do is combine fish of absolute top quality with the optimal preparation method: cooking fish sous vide guarantees practically perfect results and is also comparatively inexpensive and easy. And our excellent seafood products take care of the rest.

Seafood for sous vide

Seafood such as octopus or cuttlefish quickly becomes tough and dry if prepared incorrectly. When cooking sous vide, this is practically impossible thanks to the gentle preparation in a vacuum at relatively low cooking temperatures. This is also how our top products get their many vitamins and minerals that make them so healthy

This is important to keep in mind when cooking sous vide

  1. STEP 1 – DEFROST SEAFOOD You get most of our seafood frozen. In order to maintain the top quality of our products, you should defrost our products gently and slowly. To do this, you can place the respective products in cold water for 15-20 minutes while still in the packaging. Then take it out of the packaging, cover it in kitchen paper and let it thaw in the fridge at 3-5 °C for several hours. Finally, take it out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature for a while.
  2. STEP 2 – CLEAN Rinse fish or seafood briefly under running water and then pat dry thoroughly with kitchen paper. If necessary, remove shells from crustaceans and/or descale the fish and score the skin so that the added flavors can be better absorbed.
  3. STEP 3 – SPICES Place the seafood in a sous vide bag. Depending on your taste, add herbs (thyme, dill or lemongrass) and spices (garlic, lemon and chili), as well as salt and pepper. Vacuum the bag and seal it airtight. By the way: Some of our lobster products are already packed in bags suitable for sous vide and can therefore be vacuum cooked without any extra effort.
  4. STEP 4 – PREPARE WATER BATH Heat water in a large saucepan to a temperature between 45°C and 63°C. It is important that fluctuations in the water temperature are reduced to a minimum. You can either use a roast thermometer for this. However, you will then have to check the water temperature regularly and adjust it if necessary. It's much easier with a special boiling rod that is inserted into the pot and uses an integrated thermometer to keep the water temperature constant.
  5. STEP 5 – VACUUM COOKING As soon as the water has reached the desired temperature, place the bag and its contents in the water bath with the cap facing upwards. The cooking time varies depending on the size and thickness of the product, but expect a minimum cooking time of 45 minutes. A big advantage of sous vide cooking, however, is that it doesn't harm the food if it stays in the water for a few minutes longer. This makes vacuum cooking so easy and uncomplicated.
  6. STEP 6 – REMOVE AND FRY Carefully remove the bag from the water bath. It's best to help yourself with long kitchen tongs or a fork. Open the bag and remove the seafood. Depending on your taste and recipe, fry it again for a short time in a pan or on the grill to get a crispy, aromatic outside.
  7. STEP 7 – SEASONING AND SERVING Keep any juices that have leaked in the bag and pour them over the dish. Also season and salt as desired. Finally, arrange on preheated plates with your chosen side dishes and serve.
