Quick Sous Vide Salmon Dinner For Company

Pin It

Tonight, our good friends came over to unload us of some of the crap we’ve been piling up in our house for the last few years. To thank them for taking our garbage, I made them dinner:

seared sous vide sockeye salmon (15 minutes at 130 F),

cauliflower fried “rice,”


braised green beans with tomatoes and onions,


and spicy sautéed mushrooms with anchovy.

Here’s my plate (including roasted carrots with aged balsamic vinegar):

An hour after I got to work, it was snack time. I scarfed down some roasted chestnuts and beef jerky.  At around 1:30 in the morning, I had lunch: leftover pork chop, roasted broccoli and bacon, and cauliflower “rice.”  I added some herb gravy to make sure the pork stayed moist despite being nuked in the microwave oven at work.
Even though I should have been full, I wasn’t, so I ate some mac nuts, almonds, and coconut flakes for dessert. I can pack it down, yo!

Dinner at 5:00 a.m.: leftover sous vide top sirloin steak, cauliflower “rice,” roasted broccoli and bacon, and herb gravy.  Since I wasn’t happy with the original texture of the meat (and it only got worse after getting nuked), I made sure to cover it all with gravy to try to salvage it.  Glad I have more gravy in the fridge in case I have more meals to rescue later in the week.
