Meal for One: Crispy Skin Salmon with Mushrooms and Brussel Sprouts

It’s hard to go wrong when steaming salmon in the Thermomix – so here’s another recipe with a different accompaniment.  I love brussel sprouts and doing them on the stove gives them a lovely toasty flavour.

Serves 1

Salmon Mushrooms Brussel SproutsIngredients

200g salmon fillet

500g water

Light olive oil for cooking

1 clove garlic, minced

4 mushrooms, halved

4 brussel sprouts, outer leaves removed and halved


1. Place fish on the top tray of the Varoma

2. Put water in the Thermomix bowl, close lid and assemble the Varoma on top

3. Steam fish for 10 minutes/Varoma/Speed 1

4. After 3 minutes, heat oil in a small frying pan on medium-high heat

5. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds

6. Add brussel sprouts and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally

7. Add mushrooms, turn heat down to medium and cook for another 5 minutes until the brussel sprouts are browned; remove the pan from the heat and put vegetables on a dinner plate

8. When the Thermomix finishes, check the fish and depending on the thickness of the fish, steam for another 1 to 2 minutes

9. Turn the heat on the frying back on to medium-high and place the salmon skin-side down on the pan

10. Cook until the skin is browned and crispy; then remove from heat

Tips and Hints

Make it easier to clean up – scrunch up a piece of baking and run under water.  Open up and place under the fish before putting on the Varoma tray – just make sure that all of the holes aren’t covered up.
