Instant Pot Teriyaki Salmon Recipe (Instant Pot Fish)

1

Pressure Cook Salmon


Add 4 crushed garlic cloves and 1 – 2 slice (5g) of ginger in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.

add crushed garlic and ginger

Layer 2 salmon steaks on the garlic cloves.

add salmon in Instant Pot

To make teriyaki sauce, mix ¼ cup (60ml) Japanese soy sauce or regular soy sauce, ¼ cup (60ml) mirin, ¼ cup (60ml) Japanese cooking sake, ¼ tsp (1.25ml) sesame oil, and 2 tbsp (28g) white sugar together.

Pour homemade Teriyaki sauce on the salmon.

Close lid and turn Venting Knob to Sealing position.

Instant Pot Salmon Cooking Time: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 0 minute (zero minute) and Natural Release for 10 minutes.

*Note: 0 minute (zero minute) is not a typo! We’re using the heat from the “Pressurize” Stage + “Depressurize” Stage to cook the salmon in Instant Pot.

High Pressure for 0 minutes

After 10 minutes, release the remaining pressure by turning the Venting Knob to the Venting position.

Remove the lid carefully.

Check internal temperature at its’ thickest part with an accurate food thermometer.

*Pro Tip: The United States Food and Drug Administration recommends cooking salmon to an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C), but I personally think anything over 125°F (52°C) is fine for farmed Atlantic Salmon.

*Note: If for some reason, the salmon is below 125°F (52°C), place the lid back on and let the residue heat cook the salmon.

Mix 2.5 tbsp (22.5g) cornstarch with 3 tbsp (45ml) cold water in a small mixing bowl.

Add the cornstarch mixture one third at a time to thicken the teriyaki sauce until desired thickness.

*Pro Tip: You don’t have to use all of the cornstarch thickener. Use according to your taste.

*Pro Tip: we used a blow torch to slightly caramelize the teriyaki sauce on the salmon.
