Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Sous Vide Cooking Time:
Recipe Type: Side, Gluten-Free
- 1 bunch asparagus (1lb/450g) potatoes, trimmed
- 2 whole garlic cloves, peeled
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
- 3 strips cooked crispy smoked bacon, crumbled
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Insert your Saki Sous Vide Cooker into a pot or another sous-vide -friendly container; fill the pot with water between the MIN and MAX marks and set the temperature to 182.3°F/83.5°C.
While the water is heating, combine asparagus, garlic cloves, mayonnaise, paprika, mustard, and lemon zest in 1-gallon zip-lock bag (or use a vacuum-sealing bag). Season to taste.
Once the water temperature is reached, insert the bag into the water or clip onto the side of the container. If using a zip-lock bag, use the water displacement method to remove the air by slowly submerging the bag into the water and then sealing. To prevent floating, place 2 heavy dessert spoons into the bag.
Set the cooking time to 10 minutes if you prefer crispy asparagus or to 20 minutes for a more tender one.
When the time is up, remove the bag from the water and check the asparagus for doneness.
Transfer asparagus to a serving plate, scatter bacon on top and sprinkle with parmesan cheese before serving.
