It’s time to put that Instant Pot to use! These easy fish filets are everything you need to satisfy your family for dinner.
Incorporating high quality fish into your diet on a weekly basis is important. Fish is rich in fatty acids that have amazing health benefits for our body. Not to mention, it is rich in protein and great for keeping you feeling full, satisfied, and healthy.
Sometimes, readers of this blog will write us and ask the best ways to prepare fish dishes. There are a ton of different ways to do it – whether it’s broiled, grilled, baked, pan-fried. The options are almost endless.
But the recipe this week takes things to the next level. Seriously – it is the EASIEST way to do it. All you need is an Instant Pot. It takes 10 minutes total. Wham. Bam. Done.
When choosing fish, I’d recommend going with a hearty, thick variety like salmon, halibut, or swordfish. This will hold up best in the Instant Pot.
And other reminder (because sometimes I forget), remember to seal your Instant Pot before you steam your fish. I have left it on “vent” more than once. *Face palm.*
To make this a complete meal, serve on top of your favorite greens, alongside cauliflower rice, next to your favorite roasted veggies. However you choose to do it, you can’t go wrong.
Instant Pot Fish Filets
- 1 pound thick, hearty fish filets such as salmon, halibut, swordfish - about 1 inch thick
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lemon or lime sliced
- Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Put your steamer rack in your Instant Pot, and add the fish filets to the rack.
Brush the filets with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and lay the lemon/lime slices over top.
Close your lid, and steam for 3 minutes. Add another minute for each inch of thickness. Remove the lid, and serve the fish with your favorite sides or toppings.
