Tasmanian Salmon in Lemon and Caper sauce
« on: January 09, 2012, 04:04:32 am »
This is so simple. Cooked in a Glass Oven Proof dish, in Varoma. The sauce is just poured over and steamed until cooked.

This is for 2 serves.

2 x 170g pieces of Salmon or Trout.
Juice of 1/2 large lemon.
1 large clove of garlic, sliced.
2 teaspoons of Baby Capers
Sprigs of Thyme.
Salt and Pepper.

Place fish in dish and add rest of ingredients.
Cover with lid and place in Varoma.
Pour boiling water, up to 1 liter mark and place Varoma on top of lid.
Varoma temp/speed 3/ 20 mins, or until cooked to your liking.

Serve with salad and rice.

Any fish would work well.

Birdie - This was very tasty for such a simple recipe and felt slimming too.  I'm still getting my head around cooking in the Varoma and was wondering whether to put a lid on the glass bowl with the fish and sauce in it, or not?  In the end I left it off for the first half of cooking and then put it on for the last half. Still tasted nice.

Chookie -  I put the lid on,  but you could just cover it with a couple of sheets of hand towel so that the water from the lid of the Varoma doesn't drip in to the sauce.

CarolineW - I made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit with the whole family .  I made it as is except that my capers were homemade pickled nasturtium pod capers, and I added a small squirt of runny honey as I didn't want to risk it being too tart for DD2.
I will definitely make this again.  Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Birdie - I have also just made a similar salmon dish from the January Womens Weekly - a Julie Goodwin recipe - where you place matchsticks of ginger, 1/4 cup apricot jam, 2 tblspn soy sauce and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan and boil 2 -3 min until syrupy.  The sauce/glaze is drizzled over the pan-fried salmon and sprinkled with sesame seeds.  She served it with soba noodles and steamed veges.  We liked this one too.  It could probably be made in the TMX.

Chookie - Birdie,  this recipe looks great.  Just cook the syrup in the TMX and  poach the fish in this sauce  in the Varoma.

Could I use Barramundi or Ocean Perch instead of salmon. My boys don't like salmon.

Looks lovely. I can't wait to try it as I am getting bored with my current repertoire of salmon!

Judy,  how did you guess.

Breakfast and dinner,  special Bircher's Museli,   1 1/2 cups Rolled oats,  500g Buttermilk or 250g low fat yog and 250 skim milk, 2 Apples cored,  Zap all hell of it and eat 200g each meal with an extra piece of fruit.

Walk 10,000 steps each day.   

Watch this space!!! for meals with 300 cals.

Today was 410 cals as I had 1/2 cup of rice and 1/4 Avo.

You sound pretty serious about it Chookie - is it easy to walk 10,000 steps a day without taking off on a trek somewhere :P

Not all that hard,  Judy.  A couple of visits to the chooks, a fast walk around the garden and just cleaning up the house and as DG says hanging out the washing and bringing it in,  all adds up.  Sitting her typing is not good for the steps. ;D ;D ;D
