Lemon and dill are the most classic flavors to complement salmon. They’re simple, yet when combined, really elevate the flavor of the fish and turn this easy meal into an elegant dinner. Pair with fresh spinach and a tablespoon of butter to complete the meal.

    In the overview it states the cooking technique is “pressure,” but in the directions it indicates “steam.” Which one is it? I have not made this yet so will not rate…

    The salmon came out very flakey and extremely dry… Is that normal? I’m thinking next time I should drizzle olive oil or even put butter on them and wrap them in foil or parchment paper? Any thoughts?

    Made this last night came out well but not as pink as I would like. Put in the oven on Broil for 5 additional minutes and was to the color I prefer.
