  1. 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!

  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.
