  1. I am anxious to try your recipe but am nervous. Why? I made a similar recipe from frozen salmon and basmati rice. The salmon remained raw in the middle and the rice stuck to the bottom. The salmon was placed on the trivet above the rice. I did this twice hoping for different results the second time because I made a few timing and water changes. Should I try yours? Thanks!!!

      1. This turned out delicious!
        I had a package of fresh salmon pieces and used it, cut the time down to 3 minutes and did a release after about 3 minutes. I added a touch more water and threw in some yellow pepper chunks and cut the olive oil back in the sauce. I poured the sauce over everything in the Instant Pot & wonderful! 😉

  2. Thanks for the awesome recipe! I also didn’t have brown sugar, so I used honey like the other guy suggested. I had sesame and olive oil. I used the sesame with honey for the salmon.
    No rice wine so I used apple cider vinegar. I didn’t have soy sauce either so I used Oyster sauce. It tasted awesome! I had a picky eater rave about it too ! So thanks again. I did have to tweak the water and pressure cook for 8 minutes total because I used 2 pieces of salmon that were 4oz each.

  3. Didnt have brown sugar, so I substituted Honey. Also did not have seasame, I just used Olive oil.
    If you do not have rice wine, I used apple cider vinegar. And if you dont have soy sauce, I used worschester sauce. It tasted awesome!
