Mealthy Tip

Because fish is so delicate, use low pressure and assure the fish is well covered when preparing in a pressure cooker. For elegant presentation, garnish with additional fresh herbs.

I was pleasantly surprised by how this tasted. I could not locate grouper, so I used sea bass instead. This dish was nice and light, but still filling.

I made this recipe and it was amazing! I cut the recipe in half to make the perfect portion for two. I love how healthy and delicious it is. You can also taste the thyme flavors, superb!

Really delicious, light and flaky lemon herb fish. The thyme and onion give it great flavor. I love to have this with a side of rice, angel hair pasta, or veggies.

Made this with halibut instead of grouper. I thought 8 minutes was going to be too long, but it was ok. Just have to be very gentle with handling.

I made this recipe using fresh haddock and it was really good. I wasn't quite sure how to cut the potatoes, but I sliced them like I would when I made scalloped potatoes. Salt and pepper is all you need, this turned out wonderfully.

Made with sole and some frozen bag potatoes and peppers. Added a little extra time. Super quick and easy. Very flavorful.

I used a cod fillet. Rubbed fish with garlic & butter olive oil, heavily seasoned with lemon pepper, pepper & salt. Put 3 pats of butter & onion on parchment paper for each filet, fish on top, lemon on top of fish. Rub sweet potato slices with butter olive oil and leaned around fish. Cook for 8 minutes, as stated above. Seasoned Sweet potatoes with Ras El Hanut & butter before eating. Super easy & good!

Very tasty and easy recipe. I used more thyme than called for and it flavored the fish and potatoes nicely. Be sure to season the fish and potatoes well. Additional lemon wedges for squeezing at the table add some freshness.

Light, flavorful, moist dish that everyone at our dinner party loved! And it was so easy to make (<15m) and assemble, with just a few key ingredients!! Highly recommend, especially for those looking for a healthy dish on day a “Fish Friday”!!

Our first pressure cooker recipe! We loved it! We used about a pound of yellow tail flounder. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We will definitely make this again!

Another great fish recipe!! Used fresh Mahi-Mahi, dried thyme and sweet potatoes. I didn’t think it was too lemony. The fish was juicy and flakey. I thought it was fresh and light!!

Major FAIL. :( I’m not sure what happened. Did exactly as the directions ordered, Fish was not cooked through all the way. I have a 6 qt. Instant Pot. The fish was semi-stacked. Any advice on how to fix a FAIL would be appreciated.
