Pressure Steamed Salmon and Veg

Pressure Steamed Salmon and Veg

Why can’t our food be macaroni & cheese and chocolate cake all the time?  Why oh WHY must we spend some days eating things like fish and vegetables?

Oh well.  Who knows?  All I know is that if you’re going to impose some kind of “light fare” to your menu, this is the way to do it.

The vid is above.

Enter: The Pressure Cooker.

Look, this is not the same pressure cooker we white-knuckled through ten years ago.  The new ones are electric, they have great timing features, they have stupidity-proof locks and they work damn well.

They won’t blow up your kitchen.

How convenient!

This recipe and method are so easy….SO CONVENIENT… you’ll hardly be able to justify not eating healthy at least ONCE in a while.  The salmon (or cod, or both) can come straight from the freezer and you don’t even need to defrost them.  It’s all done and over in less than nine minutes and both the fish and veg are absolutely infused with the chicken broth and lemon juice.  I, as a (dedicated foodie) can say, “it’s delicious”…. in all honesty.  Ha!  Get all the details in the vid above.  Below is the recipe:

Pressure Steamed Salmon and Veg

2 cups chopped cabbage (approx.)

1 carrot, chopped

2 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2-3 pieces salmon or cod, frozen

pinch salt

a few shakes of chili powder


Place the veg, chicken broth and lemon juice in the bottom of the pressure cooker.
Place the steam screen over the veg…

Place fish on the screen and dust it a little salt and chili powder.

Secure the lid on the pressure cooker, and set the time to “Chicken and vegetables…Medium”.  More info is on my vid.

It’s easy, it’s delicious, it’s fast and it’s healthy.

You can’t go wrong.  You really can’t.
