Sous vide spicy teriyaki salmon

From Cookipedia

This sous vide recipe ideally uses skinless salmon fillets to ensure the marinade penetrates well, but as the skin is easily removed once the salmon is cooked, they can be used too.

The marinade can be added directly to the pouches and the salmon marinaded in the pouch, however, I find it easier to marinade the salmon in a Lock & Lock box then add the fish to the pouches once the marinade process is complete.

To prevent the teriyaki marinade from being sucked into the pouch while vacuum sealing, vacuum seal but press the cancel button just before the liquid starts to rise up the vacuum pouch, then press seal only.

Chef's notes

Last night's Storm Imogen caused the closure of the Dartford Bridge which resulted in local traffic chaos. Because of this, the salmon was left cooking for 3 hours at 56°C (132.8°F) rather than 1 hour. The result was still delicious however due to the extended cooking time the salmon had a similar texture and mouthfeel to tinned salmon or tinned tuna. So if that appeals to you, cook the salmon for longer!

Comment from User:JuliaBalbilla

Heston personally cooks it @ 45°C (120.2°F)for 15 mins, but states that that is probably a bit underdone for most. He suggests 50°C (122°F) for most people's tastes.
