Servings 2 -4


  • 1.5-2 lb Red Snapper Whole Fish gutted and cleaned
  • 2-3 tablespoons of fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons french thyme
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Set up sous vide bucket and fill with warm water. Set to a temperature of 135°F
  • Rinse the fish and make sure there are no guts in the body cavity. This can make the surrounding meat ultra bitter and unpleasant.
  • Create your seasoning blend, add ginger, garlic powder, thyme, sesame oil and olive oil to bowl and combine.
  • Rub seasoning mixture on fish and add some to the body cavity.
  • Create a food saver bag that is plenty long enough for your fish plus about 5 inches. This will give you enough bag to attach to side of sous vide container.
  • Put seasoned Red Snapper fish into your long bag and seal with food saver. I used the vacuum seal setting and cancelled the vacuuming once most of the air was out. I didn't want it to crush the fish...
  • Put fish into sous vide water and set timer for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, remove the bagged fish from the sous vide bucket and transfer to serving dish.
