  1. Tried this recipe as directed and the instant pot never fully pressurized (likely due to the lack of fluid even though I added the remainder of the can of sauce once cooking for 9 minutes left very little liquid in the pot). I used frozen cod. The sauce burned and I had to check the temp of each fillet to make sure we could still eat it. Too bad.

    1. Oh no, I'm sorry the recipe didn't work out for you. Different pressure cooker models work a little differently, so sounds like you need to add more liquid to yours in the future.
