My husband is picky when it comes to seafood, whereas my son and I love all seafood. In fact, one of my favorite fish is salmon. I especially love Alaskan salmon, as a result of spending a week in Cordova, Alaska years ago to learn more about Copper River Salmon.
This Instant Pot Salmon recipe is pretty straightforward, allowing the natural flavors to come through with fresh lemon and dill. It’s also a healthy dish that is naturally filling. What’s your favorite way to prepare Salmon?
