Salmon Dinner

One of the aspects I love about the Thermomix is the ability to do an entire meal in an incredibly short period of time.

Fish and Chicken Fillets especially lend themselves to this way of cooking everything at once in the Thermomix.

Recently, I made a lovely meal for my son and his partner at their new home. The whole meal took only minutes to prepare and cook.

Salmon Dinner
to serve 2 - double amounts for 4

2 pieces Tasmanian Salmon (or any fish you like)
lemon pepper
juice and rind of one lemon
Mixed vegetables - I used truss baby tomatoes, broccolini, baby squash & green beans.
Potato and Sweet Potato - I can't give amounts, just enough to half fill basket for 2 and fill basket for 4.
30g butter
30g cream
s & p to taste

Juice and rind of 1 lemon
2 Tbs Mayonnaise
Lemon Pepper
Fresh or dried dill
1 tsp Cornflour

Place peeled and large diced potatoes into basket and fill TM bowl with hot water to 1 litre mark Steam on Varoma for 5 minutes on speed 5 - 6.

Place mixed vegetables in Varoma Bowl and continue steaming on Varoma temperature for a further 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare fish by placing on to scrunched wet baking paper on Varoma Tray.  Sprinkle with lemon pepper, juice and rind.

Steam a further 5 minutes or until fish is almost cooked.

Remove Varoma Trays and place onto a board or on the sink. Fish will continue to cook a little. I like my salmon pink inside.

Remove basket with potato and tip water out of TM bowl. Place potato back into bowl with cream, butter and salt and pepper.
Blend on speed 3-4 until smooth.

Place Varoma Tray back onto TM Bowl to keep everything warm while sauce is being made.

Place cornflour into a small microwave safe jug. Add a little water to blend.
Tip juice from salmon into jug and whisk in juice, rind, cream, chopped dill and lemon pepper to taste.
Microwave in short bursts of 30 seconds. Whisk after each burst of cooking. Add a little water if too thick.
Test for seasoning.

Place a dollop of mashed potato and sweet potato onto plate. Top with salmon. Place vegetables around salmon and pour sauce over.

Serve to your amazed guests.
