  • Add vegetable broth to the pot and place salmon on top of the liquid and vegetables. Select Cancel to turn off Saute mode, and close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove lid. Pour in coconut milk, then add broccoli and kale. Mix vegetables gently around the side of salmon, but be careful not to break up the cooked salmon. Sprinkle salt and pepper over top. Replace lid and set vent to "Sealing."

  • Select the Steam function and steam for 2 minutes. Release pressure by turning the seal to "Venting." Remove lid.

Cook's Notes:

Use a side of salmon weighing between 10 and 12 ounces. If you are using frozen salmon, set the timer during the High pressure cooking phase to 7 minutes.

You can use coconut milk or coconut cream, depending on your preference.
