How to Sous Vide Halibut

Halibut is normally cooked between 104°F and 140°F (40°C and 60°C) which ranges from just slightly warmed texture up to firm and even chewy at the high end. The fish only has to be cooked long enough to heat it through, usually 25 to 45 minutes. Brining the fish before cooking it also helps firm up the texture and flavor it.

The fish only has to be cooked long enough to heat through. Brining the fish before cooking it also helps firm up the texture and flavor it. This can take the form of a wet 5% brine or a dry brine.

Warning: Warning: The halibut you use should be high quality fish you would feel comfortable eating raw. The times and temperatures used are almost never enough to pasteurize it.

Sous Vide Halibut Recipes and Articles

Sous Vide Halibut with Melon and Wheat Berries Recipe

With a relatively bold flavor, sous vided halibut pairs well with many things but for this summer salad I combine it with sweet cantaloupe, zesty feta, and sour lemon for a simple but tasty dish. The addition of wheat berries rounds it all out with a nutty and sweet flavor. This dish also works well with other white fish, or even chicken and turkey.

Sous Vide Halibut with Chimichurri and Tomato Salad Recipes

Halibut is a light but flavorful fish; combining it with an herby chimichurri and an acidic tomato salad helps highlight the flavors. Chimichurri is a garlic and parsley based sauce and is very popular in many South American countries. Most chimichurri is pretty oily but I halved the olive oil in this recipe, if you prefer a more traditional style you can increase it to a full cup.
