Salmon is the best source of omega-3 fatty acids and protein, and it can be perfectly cooked in just a few minutes in the Instant Pot with fish. Because the broccoli cooks even quicker than the fish, you add it at the end of the preparing process to make sure it doesn’t turn to mash.

Then cook this addictive soy-ginger dressing, serve any extra dressing over any salad on the side. You can serve this meal with broccoli as is or with a side of rice or noodles.

Tip Make sure the fillets aren’t overlapping each other, and your Salmon fillets are even in size, so they cook perfectly.

We prefer to serve Salmon with a side of any rice and fresh green vegetables or can use salad dressing for flavor. Asparagus broccoli, green beans, mash potatoes, basil, or any type of herbs, fresh dill, or peas, lemon juices all pair best with Salmon.
