Go Fish!

Steamed Thai Glazed Instant (Pot) Salmon 
Two of my absolute favorite things coming together. Fish & the Instant Pot! Steamed fish is my go to dinner when I’m trying to drop those couple lbs in a hurry. It’s also my 6 year old’s favorite so it’s quickly becoming a once-a-week thing. (Which is rare in my house since I hate food on repeat-mode) But when you consider how quick this dinner recipe is, it’s a no brainer. But here’s my quick fix for that no-repeat-mode thing, I keep changing the marinade. I also tend to change the side dishes a lot, so it’s basically a whole new meal each time. 


  • 1 medium to large filet of fresh Salmon 
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil 
  • 2 tbsp lime/ lemon juice 
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter powder ( or peanut butter)
  • 1 tbsp honey 
  • Cilantro (for garnish)
  • Sriracha spice (optional but highly recommended)


    1. Take a large sheet of aluminum foil and wax/parchment paper approx 2 feet long each. 
    2. Place the parchment on top of the aluminum foil. 
    3. Place the filet of salmon in the center.
    4. Top it with the soy, sesame oil, lime, peanut butter powder & honey and give it a good rub.
    5. Fold the parchment in a package tightly wrapped around the salmon. Wrap that inside the foil. 
    6. You could let this sit for 30 minutes in the refrigerator or just go ahead and steam it right away depending on the tick-tock!! 
    7. Place the trivet inside the Instant Pot. Add about a cup of water.
    8. Place the fish package on top of the trivet.
    9. Close the lid and seal. 
    10. Cook for 10-11 minutes (I did 11)  on steam mode. 
    11. Quick release and serve with your choice of   Side dish. Farro was an absolute hit btw! 
    12. I added loads of sriracha spice to mine though my 6 year old gave it a pass.
