small, red skinned potatoes
cut in half or quartered
use more if using water
2) 5 to 6 ounce filets
sea salt and black pepper
baby spinach, lightly packed
Place cut potatoes into the inner liner of a pressure cooker. Add the chicken stock and 1 tablespoon of butter, salt and pepper. Place the steam rack on top.
Rub tops and sides of the salmon filets with paprika, salt, pepper, and lemon zest. Place the salmon skin side down on the steam rack.
Secure the lid in the locking position and make sure the pressure knob is turned to the "sealing" position. Cook for 3 minutes on HIGH pressure, using the + and - buttons to adjust the time.
When the pot beeps manually release the pressure. Remove the salmon and the rack, and set aside.
Press the "Cancel" button then the "Sauté" button on "Normal" heat. When it starts to sizzle add the garlic and cook, while stirring until softened, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the remaining tablespoon of butter and smash the potatoes until chunky. Add salt and pepper as need. Press the "Cancel" button.
Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Divide the salmon and potatoes between two plates. Serve with lemon wedges.
You can substitute gold potatoes for red if you prefer.
If using petite potatoes, simply cut them in half.
Try to find salmon filets that are the same thickness all the way across so they cook evenly.
Salmon is cooked when it flakes apart with a fork.
