By using powerful, high-heat steam in the Anova Precision Oven, you can have a restaurant-quality meal on the table using only a handful of ingredients and a few short minutes. This very simple fish dinner can be dressed up with different herbs or seasonings. The key is hot and fast cooking in the Anova Precision Oven using lots of steam, which both speeds up cooking and maintains moisture in the fish.
