  • 3 cod fillets
  • ½ tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • Chopped parsley for garnishing (optional for serving)


  • To prepare the Sous vide, you will first need to fill its container with water, then adjust the temperature to 132°F (55.6°C). Leave it to preheat.
  • Season your cod filets by rubbing ½ tablespoon of olive oil on both fish sides with the seasoning mixture made of garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the fish fillets in a zip-lock bag with the lemon slices. Make sure they are spread in one layer to properly and equally cook.
  • Now, for the ‘Water displacement’ technique, close the bag containing the codfish completely except one corner to allow air to come out. Dip the bag in a water filler container, keeping the zip-line above the water surface. Close the zip-line completely.
  • Dip the bag completely into the sous vide container. You can use sous vide weight magnets or kitchen metal tongs to make sure the bag doesn’t float on the surface
  • Cook for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the codfish pieces from the bag using a fish spatula to avoid them from falling apart when the time is done.
  • Sprinkle the chopped parsley and serve immediately. You can serve the fish on tortillas for tacos, potatoes, or pasta.
