Some readers have asked me to convert this recipe into one for those who do not own a Thermomix. The ingredients remain the same and the cooking instructions are in italics.

Ingredients

  • 10 g fresh dill, leaves only

  • 450g leeks, halved lengthways, then sliced (5 mm)

  • 560g water

  • 180g mascarpone

  • 1 tsp fine sea salt, plus extra to taste

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper, plus extra to taste

  • 500g new potatoes, halved

  • 600g salmon fillet, fresh, skinless

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
    As above
  • Place dill in mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 8. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
    Chop dill finely and set aside.
  • Place leeks and 60 g water in mixing bowl then, with simmering basket in place of measuring cup, cook 7 min/100°C/speed 1. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
    Place leeks in saucepan with 60g water and simmer for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add mascarpone, reserved chopped dill, salt and pepper then, without measuring cup, cook 2 min/90°C/speed 1. Meanwhile, line a large baking tray with baking paper (approx. 50 cm x 50 cm). Spoon leek mixture along the middle of the baking paper then rinse mixing bowl.
    Add mascarpone, reserved chopped dill, salt and pepper and with saucepan partially on simmer for another 2 mins. Again stir occasionally.
  • Place 500 g water in mixing bowl. Insert simmering basket and weigh in potatoes then steam 25 min/Varoma/speed 1. Meanwhile, insert MEATER® in centre of thickest part of salmon fillet. Make sure the safety notch is fully inside. Place salmon on top of leeks, making sure not to cover MEATER® with leek mixture. Season salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Fold over baking paper and fold in ends to create a large parcel. Open the Meater app and connect to MEATER®. When connected, select “Tap to Setup Cook”, choose fish, select salmon and choose preferred target cooking status, then bake (200°C) until the Meater app indicates the desired cooking status has been reached.
    Simmer potatoes in water for 25 min approx. until they are cooked. Meanwhile, line a large baking tray with baking paper (approx. 50 cm x 50 cm). Spoon leek mixture along the middle of the baking paper. Place salmon on top of leeks. Season salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Fold over baking paper and fold in ends to create a large parcel. Bake in oven (200°C) for 10 – 15 mins until salmon is cooked through.
  • Remove simmering basket with aid of spatula. Carefully remove MEATER® from salmon and serve in portions with creamed leeks and steamed potatoes.
    Serve salmon with steamed potatoes.

Cook’s Tip

  • I did not use a MEATER® but I baked the salmon for 18 mins at 180℃

  1. I reread your recipe and researched the Thermomix product with which you used to cook the meal.
    I’m from the U.S. and I love this salmon and leek recipe. Unfortunately while others may love a hands-off approach to cooking as this appliance provides, I enjoy the cooking process and wouldn’t buy an appliance that automatically cooks my food for me.
    If you are getting paid to promote recipes and meals using this multi-tool I understand you not providing alternate instructions but because so much of the recipe provides no clue whether any portion is steamed or baked etc it is almost useless for the rest of us. Would you mind either providing separate instructions or at least hints in the Thermomix Method as to what each step performs in the process? I could then decipher and translate the recipe to my cooktop and oven.

    I love you website and emails but would hate to have to passover your recipes.

    Thank you and keep up the good work!

    • I was paid nothing for this article and receive no commission from Thermomix or any affiliate. I only wrote the article because two readers spotted my Thermomix in the background of another picture and asked me for a review. Of course, the Thermomix is not for everyone however it is used by many professional chefs as well as housewives. I will translate the recipe this week for non-thermomix users. I did not have time before publishing. I cooked it for Grace on Wednesday and she loved it so much she said I must pop it up on the website. I will need to try it out before I publish extra instructions. Hope that helps. Annabel.

  2. Would love to cook this salmon recipe but done without using the Thermomix. When do you anticipate putting it on your website. Many thanks.
