Trying to eat more salmon? It helps if it can be ready in minutes! This one pot meal is as delicious as it is healthy and I am downright obsessed! The salmon can go from freezer to pot with no defrosting necessary and the total cook time is LESS THAN 15 minutes, including pressure build time. If you do have fresh salmon on hand, cut down the cook time by 2 minutes and cut the sweet potatoes a little bit smaller to assure even and complete cooking.
