Thats 45-60 minutes!
Thanks for the recipe, that sounds really great!
My wife just bought 4 kilos of cod filets (sight unseen) from one of the restaurant provisioners here in Hong Kong. Tried one filet cooked her way and she didn't like it, so I get to try a number of different ways to SV them. Will post as I can

Thanks for sharing, it'll be great to hear what is working well for you!
which wine did/do you add? Red or white wine? Dry or more fruity? I happen to have this next day wine delivery I got from my mother and it is a very dry Shiraz from Australia - I wonder, can I use that one too? Or do you recommend another / a special kind of wine?
I think they used a dry white in the original recipe so I'm sure your Shiraz would work great!
