  • pinch of salt

To Serve:

  • taco sized flour,or corn tortillas
  • ½red cabbage,sliced thin
  • 2ripe avocados,sliced thin

Instructions

  1. Heat the water: Fill your pot with water and place your immersion circulator inside. Set the temperature to 132°F and let water come to temperature.

  2. Prep the fish: Season halibut with a pinch of salt, pepper, and ground cumin. Add to gallon-sized bags.

  3. Seal the bag: Seal the bag, removing as much air as possible by using the water displacement method to help press out all the air:

  4. Lower the bag with the fish into the water, letting the water press the air through a small opening in the bag. Once the air has been pressed out, seal the bag.

  5. Cook the halibut sous vide: Once the water has come to temperature cook the halibut for 45 minutes. If your fillets are thicker than 1 inch, add 15 minutes to cooking time.

  6. Meanwhile, make the apple slaw and the sour cream sauce: If you haven’t already done so, dice the apples and radishes. Toss together in a small bowl with onions, lime juice, and a pinch of salt.

  7. In another small bowl, stir together the sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, and salt for the sour cream sauce.

  8. Assemble the tacos: A few minutes before the halibut is ready, warm the tortillas in a dry skillet over medium-low heat. When the halibut is done, remove it from the bag and transfer it to a plate.

  9. Use a fork to break the fish into chunky pieces. Assemble the tacos by adding a smear of sour cream sauce to each tortilla and topping with a few slices of avocado, cabbage, a few scoops of slaw, and about two ounces of sous-vide halibut.

  10. Drizzle more sour cream sauce over top, and serve!
