  • :(Disappointing, even the bok

    Submitted by margarose on 20. February 2013 - 21:46.

    tmrc_emoticons.(Disappointing, even the bok choi was not cooked! The rice was perfect, the sauce seemed to have good ingredients but as for steaming fish and vegetables in foil and paper (and I only had one layer of both) not possible. I up-ended the lot and placed it in a fry pan with a foil lid! After working till 6.30pm I was not impressed to have to wait ages for my dinner. 

    Has potential if it is rewritten, as I had to make lots of insertions into the recipe. Thermomix user for 2 months only but housewife/cook for 41 years..

  • I had a go at this last

    I had a go at this last night. I used salmon steaks and must say they turned out a treat. I did have to increase the steaming time by another 10 minutes but found this to be a great recipe.

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Made this for dinner tonight

    Submitted by A Warman on 10. June 2012 - 05:38.

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! The only problem was that after 16 mins my fish was still completely raw so I ended up taking it out of the baking paper and foil and placing it directly in the Varoma dish for another 12 or so minutes after which it was perfect - my husband almost licked the plate clean! Wondering what I did wrong - maybe it was too wrapped up to begin with? I had the top covered and reading the recipe again I am now wondering if I should I have left it open and just had foil around the sides? Anyway, will definitely make this again!
