[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food and Wine Test Kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] All you need For this mutinous tip is a resealable plastic bag and I have here this beautiful salmon fillet. Go ahead and season them with some salt and pepper and then take your salmon fillet and you're gonna pop it right into your resealable plastic bag. I'm gonna add lemon because I loved citrus, and then I like to roll the salmon because that's gonna real pressed out all that extra air. We're gonna lower this into a large deep skillet that has simmering water. Go ahead and fold the bag over the simmering [INAUDIBLE] and I'm going to go ahead with other salmon fillet. [MUSIC] But sometimes I get creative with Feeling processed. Behind the head. And if you look at this you can see all these really delicious salmon juices. That is not water. That is actually the natural oil from the salmon. So we love that, that's called flavor. And when you pinch the end of the fillet, if it starts to flake then you know it's cooked and the center is just firm enough which means it's nicely medium there. I preferred that way. But if you like it more medium or medium well, go ahead and leave it in the water a few more minutes. And you're gonna cut, open the bag and slide it right on to the plate. Where we going to enjoy it, a lovely spring salad. [MUSIC] Look at that, and it falls right off. It is so incredibly moist, we didn't lose any of those delicate salmon flavors, and we got a hint of citrus. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
