Sous Vide Lemon Rosemary Salmon

If you are looking to make salmon that is completely infused with flavor, I would recommend investing in a Sous Vide. I have used my Sous Vide for many dishes but this salmon dish is at the top of the list. The salmon comes out extremely flaky and moist. This technique of cooking enhances the flavors in every bite. For a dish so elegant, it is extremely easy to make. My recipe below details the process, however you can also make this dish in a skillet which I outline below.

If you are not interested in making this using a Sous Vide, you can still make this dish by combining the ingredients with the salmon in a sealed bag and refrigerate it to let the flavors marinate. Then remove the salmon from the bag and sear the skin in a hot pan with a drop of olive oil. Then add the lemon mixture from the bag and cook the salmon all the way through. Whichever method you desire, I think we should just jump into the recipe.


  • 3 Lbs. of wild caught salmon
  • 3 Lemons
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh black pepper
  • 1 Tsp. sea salt


  • Zest the 3 lemons
  • Juice the 3 lemons
  • In a mixing bowl, add the lemon zest, lemon juice, rosemary, garlic powder, pepper and salt
  • Whisk together until all the ingredients are combined
  • Place the salmon and the mixture in a resealable bag
  • Remove as much air from the bag as possible
  • Set your Sous Vide to 115 degrees
  • Place the bag in the water bath and cook for 30 minutes
  • When the salmon has cooked for 30 minutes, heat a pan with a drop of olive oil
  • Place the salmon in the pan skin side down for approximately 3 minutes
  • Remove the salmon and place on a serving platter
  • Pour the lemon mixture into the hot pan and bring to a quick boil
  • Spoon the lemon mixture over the salmon and serve
