Sous vide lobster tomato salad over vert

Sous Vide Lobster Tails Recipe

Lobster cooked sous vide is tender and succulent, and this recipe showcases it with a simple tomato and corn salad. I prefer my lobster cooked at 131°F (55°C), but 140°F (60°C) will give you a more traditional texture. For a much softer texture you can drop the temperature lower. I usually serve this with traditional lobster dinner sides of corn on the cob and clam chowder. When I want to be fancy I'll pair it with a simple salad of tomatoes, corn, and avocado.

Sous Vide 5-Spice Duck Recipe

This recipe calls for freshly toasted and ground spices which adds a lot more depth and character than using pre-ground spices. However, if you don't have the time or inclination to do this it is still excellent with prepared spices, or even a pre-mixed 5-spice Chinese powder with some extra fennel seeds added. Serve this with some roasted or stir fried vegetables in a grain bowl.

These chicken thighs have an encompassing combination of sweet, spicy, and minty flavors. The sauce is very easy to make and is poured directly over the chicken thighs before serving.

Sous vide shrimp is always plump and juicy. Combine the shrimp with a sweet, spicy, and bold salad of sweet mango and corn mingled with jalapenos for bright bursts of flavor. A party favorite recipe.

Grilled sous vide chicken salad with a honey mustard dressing provides a light tasty meal any day of the week.

For a more savory salad you can blend in a few roasted garlic cloves into the dressing.

Bacon Cheddar Broccoli Egg Cup Bites Recipe

These egg cup bites were first popularized by Starbucks but are really easy to make at home. You can use any ingredients you want to flavor them but my favorite is broccoli, cheddar cheese and bacon. For a lighter egg you can replace the cream with milk, or use 1/4 cup cream cheese for a denser egg.

Sous Vide Pulled Pork Recipe with Chili Pepper BBQ Sauce

Pulled pork is usually made using the pork butt, sometimes called the pork shoulder or Boston Butt.

This recipe uses a chili pepper sauce to give the dish some kick and depth of flavor.

Miso Glazed Sous Vide Turnips Recipe

Using sous vide to glaze turnips is a simple process that results in a great side dish, especially when combined with umami-rich miso.

This recipe also works well for other root vegetables such as carrots, radishes, and parsnips.

Sous vide boar tenderloin cherry black

Sous Vide Boar Tenderloin Recipe with Cherry Chutney
