A salmon dinner

(Recipe adapted from this blogpost)

This dish is a great all-in-one meal. Potatoes boiled in the Thermomix bowl, veggies steamed in the Varoma dish, and fish on the tray. Best thing is that you can use up all the stray veggies you have and replace the potatoes with rice or pasta if you prefer (although if you do this I’d recommend binding the dish together with the sauce from the original blogpost.) The quantities below are for a dinner for two, but you can always make more or less.

For some reason I didn’t take any prep pictures of the salmon or veggies, only the potatoes! Silly me.

2 pieces of salmon (or any other fish you prefer
Lemon pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
A TMX basket filled with diced, peeled potatoes
A Varoma dish filled with your veggies of choice for steaming (just make sure there are enough uncovered holes for the steam to rise)
Butter, milk, salt and pepper and anything else you want to include in your whipped potatoes



  • Place the basket of potatoes in the TMX bowl and fill up to just under the 2l mark.
  • Cook potatoes for 10 mins/Varoma/speed 2.
  • Pop your Varoma dish filled with veggies on top and steam for an additional 5 mins/Varoma/speed 2.
  • While the veggies are steaming, scrunch a piece of baking paper under the tap, squeeze the excess water out and lay the paper on your Varoma tray. Place the fish on top, drizzle the lemon juice over the fillets and sprinkle lemon pepper to taste.
  • Pop the tray on top of the veggie dish and continue steaming for another 7-10 mins/Varoma/speed 2.
  • Check that your fish and veggies are cooked, otherwise continue the steaming process for another couple of minutes on the same settings. Then remove the dish and tray and set aside.
  • Drain the potatoes and pour out the water from the TMX bowl, then pop the potatoes back into the bowl. Add butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Whip potatoes for 5 secs/speed 5.

    Plate up, eat up, then end the night on a sweet note with a slice of chocolate mousse cake.
