Lemon and dill are by far my favorite ingredients to use when making salmon. I’ll bake, slow cook, grill, and saute salmon with lemon and dill. I’ll use lemon slices, or lemon juice, or even lemon essential oil with olive oil.
Now, I’m adding pressure cook to the list of possible ways to cook salmon with lemon and dill. And now I’m calling this my favorite way to cook salmon. The Instant Pot just does a fantastic job of cooking the salmon….so it ends up perfectly moist and tender on your dinner plate.
It takes just minutes using the Steam function of the electric pressure cooker!
If you’re stuck cooking the same things over and over in your Instant Pot…or your Instant Pot is stuck in the box, screaming your name, then I highly recommend that you sign up for my Electric Pressure Cooking 101 Online Class!
