Instant Pot Salmon Broccoli & Potatoes
Instant Pot Salmon Broccoli & Potatoes was the fourth recipe in a sequence of showing people how to steam healthy food in the Instant Pot.
Firstly, we shared with you Instant Pot Broccoli, then Instant Pot Salmon & Broccoli and then third on the list was Instant Pot New Potatoes, it all led up to sharing with you this recipe for Instant Pot Salmon, Broccoli + Potatoes and how easy it is for newbies with their electric pressure cookers.
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
For a bit of fun this is what we said about making salmon, broccoli and potatoes in the Instant Pot, after the first time doing so back in late 2016.
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.
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 it’s 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 ????
How Long To Instant Pot Salmon?
Instant Pot Salmon falls under the 4 minute rule. You steam your salmon in the Instant Pot for 2 minutes with your favourite vegetables and potatoes and then allow it to complete natural pressure release for a further 2 minutes.
This brings your cooking time to just 4 minutes for delicious Instant Pot Salmon!
Instant Pot Salmon Dinner
Though what I am cooking here today is a full Instant Pot Salmon Dinner. You’re cooking not only Instant Pot Salmon, but Instant Pot potatoes and vegetables to go with it.
Because it is such an easy cooking process you can easily recreate your Instant Pot Salmon Dinner at home. You can also swap it for your favourite vegetables and potatoes.
For example, if you want Instant Pot Salmon on Paleo you could use sweet potatoes or cubed butternut squash or pumpkin.
Instant Pot Steamer Baskets
Best of all I love using my Instant Pot Steamer Baskets. They are our most used Instant Pot Accessory and I couldn’t imagine not using them.
You can place your salmon, broccoli and potatoes into your steamer basket, lower it into the Instant Pot and it will steam your food for you. Whether this is for steaming salmon or for something else it does the trick.
Instant Pot Salmon Broccoli And Potatoes
- Chop up your broccoli into florets and put to one side.
- Place 160ml of water into the bottom of your Instant Pot.
- Season your potatoes with salt, pepper and fresh herbs and also season your salmon and broccoli with salt and pepper.
- Start by placing your broccoli into the steamer basket and placing the salmon and potatoes over them. Smother your potatoes with the butter so that the butter will melt as you cook them.
- Set the valve to sealing for 2 minutes on the steam function.
- When it is finished, wait 2 minutes and then flick the valve to release pressure.
