Although I love to cook, I am truly most passionate about stupid-easy meals that taste delicious and are completely, undeniably healthy. My Pressure Cooker Salmon and Rice Pilaf fits that criteria to a T.
Of course to make the 5-mintue magic happen, you’re going to need a Pressure Cooker. If you are looking for a easy to use and budget friendly electric pressure cooker, I recommend THIS one >> GoWise USA 8 Quart, 8 in 1 Multi-Cooker (the 6 quart is fab too, but trust me the bigger model is definitely better, I have both and speak from experience)
I love my pressure cookers to the moon & back, I use them everal times a week. (P.S. I’ve been a pressure cooking fool for over 20 years now, I’m not a newbie. The new electric must-cooker models are safe and easy to use.) For more of my delicious pressure cooker creations, click HERE
Many people are fans of the Instant Pot Brand, while all pressure cookers work basically the same and you can use them interchangeable in recipes like this, when I tried one out in my kitchen head-to-head against my GoWise, the Instant Pot brand was roughly 10% longer cooking times (including preheat and depressurize), significantly more expensive and only came in a claustrophobic 6 quart, not the larger 8 quart size.
By starting with FROZEN salmon filets, uncooked rice and dehydrated vegetables, the entire dish needs just 5 minutes under pressure.
AND it’s just one dirty pot, Woot Woot!
While your salmon & rice pilaf is cooking, 5 minutes is more than enough time to toss together a salad to round our your meal.
- In your pressure cooker, add all ingredients except salmon.
- Place your steamer rack above the rice mixture and arrange your FROZEN salmon filets. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
- Cook under pressure for 5 minutes, then quick depressurize.
