    I madethis for the first time today. I was expecting the jalapeños to be too powerful but the honey and lime help to subdue it a bit. Absolutely Delicious!

    I just prepared this for my wife, who avoids all spicy foods. Of course I kept quiet about the ingredients of the sauce. The jalapeno added flavor, but little heat. Not hot, but very tasty. Simple to prepare. I steamed asparagus as the side. A filling and satisfying meal.

    First time turned out good. Went to make it a second time and got burned food even though i put more water in it. The quick release valve wouldnt stop steaming so it never got to pressure before it burned

    Hi Djej1201,

    Sounds like your steam release was not properly on or needs to be removed for cleaning.

    Please attempt the water test to ensure your unit is functioning correctly.

    I loved this! I used cayenne instead of jalepeño and didnt have any parsley so left it out. I also spread some on the salmon while it was cooking in the IP. SO GOOD.
