WHY USE THE INSTANT POT:
The real reason that I love making salmon in the Instant Pot is two folders, and it’s so easy. You get the perfectly roasted salmon in minutes.
The other reason is that it is totally flavored. Although there are not many ingredients in this recipe, you get an amazing sauce that you can pour over pasta or rice.
Easy and absolutely delicious!
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE INSTANT POT LEMON SALMON

HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT LEMON SALMON
Season your salmon filets with salt and black pepper. Add the water to the Instant Pot bowl, and add the fresh dill. Add your trivet on top, and then place the seasoned salmon on top of the rack. (Skin Side Down)
Pour some melted butter over the salmon—press manual high pressure for 3 minutes. When the time is up, do a quick release.
Remove the salmon and spoon the sauce over the salmon, garnish with fresh lemon slices and diced dill.
How To Store Instant Pot Lemon Salmon
If you have any salmon leftover, let it cool to room temperature, and then place the salmon filets into an airtight container.
Place the container into the refrigerator, where it will last between 2 to 3 days. To reheat, either microwave it, place it into the air fryer or a skillet pan. Heat until warmed.
How To Serve Salmon:
Salmon goes with any side dish, and I usually serve it with a garden salad, rice, or a side of pasta.
Since this is a KETO and low-carb-friendly meal, you can serve it with a KETO-friendly side or a kale salad.
