Instant Pot 4 Minute Salmon, Broccoli & Potatoes

Welcome to my latest Instant Pot recipe and this recipe is for Instant Pot 4 minute salmon, broccoli and potatoes.

Welcome to my latest Instant Pot recipe and this recipe is for Instant Pot 4 minute salmon, broccoli and potatoes. This is the ultimate super healthy lunch and cooked in just 4 quick minutes.

Over the last three days you’ve watched over my shoulder as I have first achieved steamed broccoli, then salmon and broccoli and finally delicious homemade new potatoes. Well today is the turn of all three together for the perfect lunch of salmon, potatoes and broccoli.

In my mind they very much fall under the idea of the perfect lunch.

But Dominic thought I was crazy for wanting to put them altogether in the Instant Pot at once because they were just not meant to be shoved in the Instant Pot together but I like to challenge his skills. So this is probably the recipe that he has probably worked at for the longest.

This of course has been good for me though, as I ended up with a huge amount of tester salmon and potatoes to eat, not to mention vast portions of broccoli to go at. Well you can’t say my diet is not balanced after this!

This final part of the recipe though, is to show you that with some clever thinking that you can make your steamed lunch all in one steamer basket without thinking about it as that typical dump meal. This meal would never be a dump meal in the normal sense but here you have it and it is cooked so quick too.

Instant Pot Recipes – The Outtakes

The problem with being married to a chef is that they take everything seriously and are brought up on making everything from manual devices and don’t really get into the kitchen gadget craze.

So when I ask Dominic to do the second recipe again but to add potatoes he thinks I need shipping off to the funny farm.

I mention its about completing the recipe but I don’t think he gets me.

He tells me that it can’t be done and I tell him to make it happen!

Thankfully he listens to me as I have the most delicious salmon, broccoli and potatoes for my trouble 🙂

      Sorry for the late reply. I think we missed some info of off the recipe. I have added extra info. If you look at point 3 on the method and this is when you use your butter, S & P and herbs. Also to brown the fish after it is cooked you can heat up a frying pan with some butter or olive oil and just add the fish in top down for 2 minutes to get a good brown colour.

    Question: Do the potatos stay in the pot with the broccoli and salmon or are they removed beforehand?

      Hi Paulaz

      The potatoes stay in the pot when you add the salmon and broccoli and then should be fully cooked at the same time as the salmon and broccoli.

    72g salmon? is that 2.6 ounces? seems like a small portion even for one person???

      Hi Dee

      Yes it is a small piece of salmon for most people. For us it is just fine as we are most of the time watching what we eat after losing a huge amount of weight and we do the hypnotic gastric band to help with our portion sizes. So if you are cooking a larger piece of salmon add more time on the keep warm mode after the cycle has finished.

    Would it be possible to get the amounts of all ingredients in USA measurements as well please? I have no idea how to convert them into ounces etc.

    • avatar Samantha and Dominic May 10, 2017, 1:23 pm

      Hi Linda,

      We are currently working on getting the conversions done and uploaded onto We expect a converter to be on the site within the next month or so. In the meantime if you Google 100g = ounce (or whatever the gram amounts are) google will translate it for you, as that’s what we do when we visit a US food blog.

      Kind regards
