Bold Italian Cod with Sous Vide Cucumber Salad
Chef Brainy
What Started it all:
Cod, Cucumber, cereal, sous vide

(Confidently sears the cod in the skillet, creating a sizzling sound)


  • 4 pieces of fresh Cod
  • 2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of cereal (your choice)
  • Sous vide machine


  1. Start by preparing the sous vide machine and setting it to 130°F (54°C).
  2. Season the cod with salt and pepper, then vacuum seal each piece separately.
  3. Place the sealed cod in the sous vide machine and cook for 20 minutes.
  4. While the cod is cooking, prepare the cucumber salad by tossing the thinly sliced cucumbers in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of white wine vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the cereal with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  6. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add the cereal mixture, toasting it until golden brown and fragrant.
  7. Once the cod is done, carefully remove it from the sous vide machine and pat dry with paper towels.
  8. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and sear the cod for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Serve the bold Italian cod alongside the sous vide cucumber salad, topped with the toasted cereal for added crunch.
