Is there a time for cooking from frozen?
From frozen, I would add 2-3 minutes to the cook time, depending on the thickness of the filets.
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I don't cook fish often. Knowing I could trust my instant pot with it made it less anxiety producing. It turned out great. Since tomatoes are in season, it was a perfect match.
You're welcome, I'm glad to hear it!
I marinated the mahi fillets in a bit of adobo and cumin powder. Instant pot contained rice covered with a garlic broth and olive oil. Added a jar of pineapple salsa, frozen mango chunks, and the fish on top. Cooked using the rice setting. Topped with a plethora fresh cilantro.
Used a can of tomatoes and put the fish on top of the sauce. Wasn't sure when to add oregano, so I just sprinkled it on the cooked fish. I had planned to make pasta, as in the picture. However, I decided to make spaghetti squash, instead. Excellent combination...the fish, sauce, and squash! Definitely a recipe to save. Thank you.
Spaghetti squash is a great idea to pair with this recipe. I'm glad it turned out well!
Do you leave the tomatoes in the pot while you cook your fish? thanks
Personally yes. But it’s up to you.
Simple and easy! We enjoyed it. I used a can of diced tomatoes and a touch of lemon juice.
