Course Main Course


  • Thermomix
  • Parchment paper


  • 4 salmon fillets fresh
  • 1 red chilli seeds in or out depending on how hot you like it, feel free to add extra chilli if you like it hot
  • 5 cm piece of ginger peeled and divided in one 3 cm piece and one 2 cm piece
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 2-3 spring onions the white part trimmed and the green part finely sliced
  • 80-100 g red pepper or green if you prefer green
  • A big handful of fresh coriander
  • 1 or 2 lemon or lime either goes well and it will depend on how much you like the citrus flavour
  • 10 g honey optional
  • 30 g soy sauce



    • 800 g water
    • Pak choi optional
    • Rice noodles



      • 1000 g water
      • Pak choi optional
      • 50-70 g of rice per person


      • Place chilli, the 3 cm piece of ginger, garlic and spring onion, approx 65 g of the pepper and coriander in the bowl and chop: 5 seconds, speed 7.
      • Lower down anything that may have climbed up the walls of the bowl and add the juice of half or one lemon or lime, honey and soy sauce and mix: 10 seconds, speed 3.
      • Wet a piece of baking paper, scrunch it up and lay it flat on the bottom of the varoma tray.
      • Place the salmon on top and pour most of the sauce over the top of the salmon fillets, make sure you leave a bit of the sauce in the bowl (do not wash!).
      • Place the pak choi or any other vegetables you want to use in the top tray of the Varoma, cover with the lid.
      • Place in the bowl: the 800 g water a bit of chopped pak choi, the rest of the pepper, the other chunk of ginger OR the 1000 g of water and the rice.
      • Put the Varoma (with the salmon and vegetables) in place: Varoma, speed 2, 25 minutes (this will really depend on the thickness of the steaks, the ones I buy tend to be quite thick so check them from the 12-15 minute mark or so). Check that the rice is fully cooked
      • If using noodles, add them in the last few minutes according to your packet’s instructions or wait until the salmon is cooked and use the stock then.
      • Serve with Spanish flair!


      Note: If you use wholegrain rice, try soaking it first for a few hours so that it doesn’t take forever to cook.
