Salmon Piccata Is An Excellent Instant Pot Meal.

Looking for excellent Instant Pot meal recipes? We’ve got you covered with this Salmon Piccata. I’m in tons of online groups and everyone is looking for easy Instant Pot Meals that really turn out good. They hate wasting their time on making a meal only to have disappointing results.  This instant pot dinner is sure to please a hungry crowd and is ready in only a few minutes.

Instant Pot Salmon Piccata

This Traditional Piccata refers to the way chicken or veal is dredged in flour, fried and then served with a lemon butter sauce. However the sauce has become more of a signature of the dish than the breaded meat. In this version we use salmon instead of the traditional chicken or veal. We also skip the breading and frying which makes this dish completely gluten free, light, healthy and super quick to cook. This is an instant pot meal you will be glad to make over and over again.

The other trick we use to make things go faster is the Pot-in-Pot method of cooking. This is where we use a second pot inside the instant pot and this allows us to cook two things at once. In this case, we are cooking mashed potatoes in the main insert and cooking our salmon and sauce in the second inner pot. You can purchase special pots specially made for pot-in-pot cooking or you can use a cake pan that fits inside your instant pot and cover it with foil. 

To make this work the salmon must be frozen when you put it into the Instant Pot.  The mashed potatoes take far longer to cook than salmon so by keeping the salmon frozen it equalizes the cooking time.

I’ve had many people who’ve attended my online Instant Pot Classe say that learning this technique has changed their dinner routine. Now they regularly make salmon and potatoes, where as before they felt it was a chore. I hope you enjoy this recipe too.
