INSTANT POT SUNDAY SERIES – WEEK SIX
Week six of the IPSS is here and it doesn’t cease to amaze me! Just looking back at all the recipes from past weeks (links below) I simply cannot believe all that wonders that an Instant Pot can do.
This translate into quicker healthy meals. Meals that otherwise wouldn’t be accomplished because, let’s face it -time isn’t always there.
Week 4 – Instant Pot Supersonic Chili
This time I was largely surprised by this 7-minute healthy salmon, and only 2 minutes under pressure! The process was incredibly easy, quick and the result was nothing short of amazing!
But perhaps what makes this Asian Salmon extra special, is the fact that it is free of soy and gluten. I love Asian flavors with all my heart but honestly all the soy infused sauces and marinates don’t seem to love me back. Fine! pretty sure I can move on… For years I’ve been cooking with a soy alternative which is amazing, flavorful and don’t wreck havoc with my hormonal system.
Whether that’s something you also need to watch for or not, this salmon recipe has all the feel good ingredients, lot’s of flavor and is super quick. It will probably be ready before you finish setting the table.
