Mealthy Tip

Make sure to have everything ready in the steamer basket before loading the pressure cooker so the rice doesn’t absorb the liquid before the recipe gets started.

light, flaky, savory, delicious . . . I loved getting the rice side at the same time as the fish. Had some nice thick chunks of cod & they were perfect for this

I was pretty skeptical about cooking fish in a pressure cooker, but this recipe turned out great. The capers and salted olives gave a nice salty bite needed for a fish like cod that needs more flavor. However, I used a little less of the capers so it wouldn't be overkill.

This dish was really good. I especially loved the olives and capers on top. It's what gave the dish the Mediterranean flavors, in addition to the olive oil. It also paired perfectly with the basmati rice.

Incredible Mediterranean fish, perfect over a bed of basmati rice and a side of roasted sweet peppers. Great recipe for eating light and eating healthy. I've used cod and halibut.

Being able to make both the fish and rice at the same time in a single pot is probably one of the easiest, most convenient cooking experiences I've ever had. As a busy mom, I'm always multitasking, and that's exactly what the Multipot does! I used cod with Kalamata, and no capers. I garnished with a lemon wedge, and it was ready to serve. Perfect weeknight dinner!

Quick, easy, and delicious! This was the first recipe I made with my new Mealthy and I love it! I used talapia and brown basmati rice (toasted in oil before adding to the pot). The rice was a bit al-dente but everyone loved it. I also garnished with olives, capers, and goat cheese.

Loved the idea of cooking 2 dishes at once (rice and fish). I used fresh Mahi-Mahi and dried thyme. It turned out perfect!!! I had the leftovers for lunch the next day!!! Loved that is was a quick prep and pressure cooker did the rest. It is a great balance of all flavors. The fish was flakey and delish -juicy too. Perfect!
