Honey-Glazed Salmon

Cuisinart original

While the Cuisinart® Pressure Cooker may cook food very quickly, its Low Pressure setting is gentle enough for delicate items such as fish. In this recipe, salmon cooks perfectly in just a few minutes. Plus, a touch of sweetness and Asian flavors will appeal to even the pickiest eaters.

  1. Season salmon with the salt and pepper. In a small bowl, whisk together the water, honey, soy sauce, garlic and ginger and put into the cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Pressure Cooker with the salmon fillets. Select Low Pressure. Set time to 4 minutes. When the audible beep sounds, use Quick Pressure Release.
  2. Once pressure is released completely, the red indicator will drop. Remove lid and transfer salmon to a serving plate, flesh side up.  Select Brown to reduce cooking liquid until it thickens. Spoon over salmon and sprinkle with sliced green onions.
