      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Creamy Tuscan salmon with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes
  1. Grate Parmesan cheese, 5 seconds/speed 8, then set aside in a large jug.
  2. Place onion, garlic and tomatoes into bowl and chop 3 seconds/speed 6. Scrape down sides.

    Add olive oil and butter, then sautee 5 minutes/120 degrees/speed 2.
  3. Meanwhile, chop your choice of vegetables (carrots, broccoli, squash etc) and place into Varoma.

    Chop spinach, basil and parsley.
  4. Add cream, parmesan and stock paste to Thermomix bowl and mix 5 seconds/speed 3. Set cream sauce aside in a large jug (re-use the Parmesan jug if preferred).
  5. Without washing Thermomix bowl, add 500g water, and steam vegetables in Varoma for 20 minutes/Varoma/speed 2.
  6. Meanwhile, heat a large heavy-based pan on the stove with a small amount of olive oil.

    About 10 minutes into the Varoma cooking time, place salmon into pan, skin side down, season with salt and pepper to taste, and sear until crisp.

    Reduce heat to very low.

    Place chopped spinach and herbs into pan and cover with cream sauce.

    Simmer, until salmon is cooked to your liking and spinach is wilted.
  7. Serve salmon and sauce with steamed vegetables on the side.

Salmon can also be steamed, using the top tray of the Varoma.

If steaming, cook cream sauce for 10 minutes/100 degrees/speed 2 after Step 4, then set aside with chopped spinach and herbs in a ThermoServer, while you steam the vegetables and salmon.

To ensure salmon does not over-cook, add to Varoma top tray for final 10 minutes of the 20-minute cooking time.
