Instructions
  1. Place the potatoes in the inner pot and add 1 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place a steam rack on top of the potatoes.
  2. On top of the salmon add the paprika, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and place the salmon on top of the steam rack. Secure the lid.
  3. Press the Manual or Pressure Cook button and adjust the time to 3 minutes.
  4. When the timer beeps, let pressure release naturally until float valve drops and then unlock lid.
  5. Remove the salmon and steam rack from the pot and set aside.
  6. Press the Sauté button and cook the potatoes 1 minute. Add the garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the oil and the remaining salt and pepper. Use a fork to gently mash the potatoes to achieve a chunky texture. Press the Cancel button.
  7. Add the spinach and stir until wilted, about 1–2 minutes. Serve the salmon and potato and spinach mixture with the lemon wedges.

    Made it tonight and it was really good. I use a 6qt and I followed the recipe exactly, except I added 4 TBSP butter to potatoes when mashing instead of avocado oil. Also added a smattering of chili powder to salmon with the other spices.

    Healthy and easy. I love one pot meals! I followed the recipe exactly except for a few tweaks. I cut the potatoes in half before adding them. Also, after pressure cooking there was a significant amount of water leftover, but I just drained it. Next time I will use less water and add some more seasonings.

    We were underwhelmed by the flavoring on the salmon. Also, it took a long time for the pressure to release naturally (a step between cooking steps), which must not be included in the recipe’s cook time.

    Super yummy! I would suggest using more salt on the salmon than the recipe calls for but other than that, this was so tasty I will definitely make this again.

    I loved the potatoes and spinach I don’t think I would do the salmon in the pressure cooker again I can bake it in the oven a lot faster. I thought was a little dry everyone still ate it. My kids said it wasn’t dry but the outside look dry to me.
