Pressure Cooker Steamed Lemon-Herb Fish
- 1½ cups water

- 4 fillets grouper
- 4 sprigs thyme
- 1 white onion, sliced into thin rings
- 3 potatoes, thinly sliced
- 2 pinches salt
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- Pour water into pressure cooker pot. Place rack into the pot.
- Line bottom of steamer basket with parchment paper. Arrange lemon slices in an even layer onto the paper. Lay fillets on the lemons; top with thyme sprigs and onion and cover with an even layer of potato slices. Drizzle salt, pepper and olive oil over everything.
- Lower steamer basket onto the rack.
- Close lid and set valve to Sealing. Press Pressure Cook and adjust cooking time to 8 minutes at Low Pressure.

Aja A says:
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.
Laura Griffin says:
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!
Greg Jones says:
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.
Dominique M says:
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.
Jordan Clark says:
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.
Kevin Tanner says:
Made with sole and some frozen bag potatoes and peppers. Added a little extra time. Super quick and easy. Very flavorful.
Michele Gagne says:
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”!!
Carol Wagner says:
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!
Tauni Dawson says:
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!!
