Instant Pot Blackened Salmon


This officially means we are OVER the hump with our new meal plan and healthy summer diet! 💪🏻

You know what they say...the hardest part is the first week!  That’s because after the first week, you’ve cried out all your tears and truly have nothing left to cry.. for real, though! 🤣😂😭

Anyhow, as the weather gets warmer and days go on,  I continue to fall more and more in love with my Instant Pot multicooker every single day! I’m not sure if I am being rewarded for trying to live a healthier lifestyle or what but WOW! These healthier, summer-ish, recipes seem to get easier and easier to prep and even LESS TIME TO COOK! 

This savory salmon was prepped and cooked from FROZEN in 5-minutes. If that doesn’t change your life than I’m not sure what will? THIS IS A MUST TRY!
