Salmon and Vegetables
Put water and herbs in the Instant Pot and then put in the steamer rack making sure the handles are extended up.
Place salmon, skin down on rack.
Drizzle salmon with ghee/fat, season with salt and pepper, and cover with lemon slices.
Close the Instant Pot and make sure vent is turned to “Sealing”. Plug it in, press “Steam” and press the + or – buttons to set it to 3 minutes.
While salmon cooks, julienne your veggies.
When the Instant Pot beeps that it’s done, quick release the pressure, being careful to stay out of the way of the steam that will shoot up. Press the “Warm/Cancel” button. Remove lid, and using hot pads, carefully remove rack with salmon and set on a plate.
Remove herbs and discard. Add veggies and put the lid back on. Press “Sauté” and let the veggies cook for just 1 or 2 minutes.
Serve veggies with salmon and add remaining teaspoon of fat to the pot and pour a little of the sauce over them if desired
Put everything except the olive oil in the bowl of the food processor (use the steel blade).
Process at high speed for 2 minutes.
While the machine is running, pour the olive oil into the pierced food pusher – do it in parts if it’s too small to accept the entire cup of oil at once.
Just let it drip in. In about 2 minutes more, open the food processor and remove. Drizzle over salmon and vegetables to your own taste
