Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place salmon in a ziplock bag or in a  6-inch pan that fits inside your Instant Pot
  • Mix all the sauce ingredient and pour over the salmon. Allow it to marinate for 15-30 minutes.
  • Put 2 cups of water in the inner liner of your pressure cooker.
  • Place a steamer rack into the liner.
  • Place the pan of salmon and sauce on the rack.
  • Cook for 3 Minutes low pressure.
  • Allow it to release pressure naturally for 5 mins and then release all remaining pressure.
  • At this point, you can serve right away or broil for 3-4 minutes for a browned finish.
  • You could also bake this salmon in a 350F oven until the fish is flaky and done. 

Notes

  • You can substitute regular marmalade for the low sugar version
  • Since low sugar marmalades vary, nutritional info does not include macros for the marmalade. Please add that to the total macro counts.
  • This will work with any kind of firm-fleshed fish.
  • You can do this with frozen fish but it won’t take the marinade as well, so your results could be a little blander.
  • You can sub regular soy sauce for dark if you would like. 
  • If you've never done PIP before, watch the video posted above to learn how it works.
