I'm always taken aback by all the knowledge Dr. Rhonda Patrick holds in her head. She digs deep and fleshes out the through tons of research. One of her top recommendations is eating seafood. Unfortunately, I have a seafood intolerance. When I eat it, I begin to get a rash that starts in my arms and depending on how much I eat, it spreads from there. I know many of you in Sweat Nation love seafood, and since I take my role as a wellness curator seriously. I want to help you optimize your health as deliciously as possible, I thought this would be a great recipe. It's quick, delicious, and healthy! Enjoy my seafood Sweat Nation compatriots.
Here's What You Need...
1 1/2 pounds frozen salmon filets
1/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup water
A few springs of fresh dill, basil, parsley or a mix
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or to taste (or 2 cloves garlic, minced)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 lemon, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon avocado oil or melted coconut oil

Drizzle salmon with oil and season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle garlic powder over the salmon and place it on the salmon in a single layer on the steamer rack in the Instant Pot. *
Layer lemon slices on top of the salmon.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, lock in place, and turn the valve to sealing.
The set the Manual setting to cook on HIGH pressure for 7 minutes.*
It will take your Instant Pot about 10 minutes to get up to pressure.

Enjoy warm over a salad, with roasted veggies or any other way that you can dream up!
*If your salmon pieces are frozen together, run them underwater until they are able to be separated. Stacking salmon might make it too thick to cook all the way through. *If your salmon is thicker than 1 inch, consider adding an extra minute or two to the cooking time. *If your salmon is extra thin, consider reducing the time by 1 minute *If the salmon is still not cooked all the way through once cook time is up (salmon cuts vary in shape and size), replace the lid and let it sit in the hot IP for a few extra minutes to steam.
