Quick and Spicy Cod Recipe (from Frozen to Fabulous in minutes)!


What a fabulous surprise it was to know an Instant Pot fish recipe can work well, in minutes and from a frozen start! I’m loving this!

I never knew the value of a pressure cooker until I got one and I love the Instant Pot! We were having a guest over for dinner the other night and I forgot to remove some pieces of wild cod to defrost during the day before I left to enjoy the sunshine and the zoo with my daughter.
Upon returning home I whipped up the side dishes of an organic romaine salad, and garlic rosemary mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes of which I’d already cooked. With everything ready but pieces of frozen fish I decided to give the InstantPot a first time run at cooking from a frozen state.
I totally winged it and the cod was phenomenal!
