Carol thank you for posting this recipe. It got the AR Collective talking about what does and doesn’t work. I made this recipe this evening and based on the current reviews, made the following modifications. For my liquid, I used 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 2T liquid aminos (use soy sauce if preferred). I put the frozen filets in the IP on the steamer rack, then poured the liquid over the fish. I seasoned my salmon with salt and pepper, because it will stick to the wet fish! I cooked it on high pressure for 4 minutes, did natural release for 2 minutes and finished with quick release. I think I could have just done a quick release and been done. The salmon was flavored well and cooked. I served it with the Back Burner Ratatouille from this site and quinoa. Picture uploaded.
If you are looking for a quick and simple way to make salmon, this is it. If you are looking for fancy with lots of flavor, this probably isn't your best choice. I love my Instant Pot and use it all the time. I love that I can put frozen salmon in, pressure it for 5 minutes and it's perfect. I seasoned mine with just salt and pepper, but sprinkled it on before cooking. I served the salmon with tarter sauce, seasoned green beans and short grained brown rice---easy peasy!
The cook time for the salmon was fine (used manual pressure) but we didn't care for this salmon in the Instant Pot. It was not over or under cooked. I added garlic onion and paprika too but the flavors didn't come through at all. This just tasted like plain salmon with no seasoning for us.
I wonder if you could accomplish the same thing (albeit a little longer time involved) and pour some water in an oven-safe pan with a rack set down in it. Then place the frozen salmon on the rack and cover the pan with foil and bake til done.
Turned out Perfect! I am NO good in the kitchen. Purchased intstant pot recently. This is only 2nd use. Took individually wrapped piece of Salmon from Costco & did the 3 minuted timer. Could not be more pleased!!
