I've been loving cooking with the Instant Pot that I bought last year on Amazon. There's been chili lime chicken thighs and a creamy vegan queso, all made easy in the super fast pressure cooker. Today, we're entering the fish world with an Instant Pot coconut curry sea bass recipe. 

The recipe comes from Michelle Fagone's new cookbook The "I love My Instant Pot" Recipe Book. I can totally relate to the title as I've completely fallen for the easy and efficient way a meal comes together in the Instant Pot, so I jumped at the chance to review the book.

Not only is it super fast, but more nutrients are retained due to the faster, more efficient pressure cooking used. You know I'm all about nutrients.

Michelle writes the food site Cavegirl Cuisine and as you might guess from the name, she features a lot of great paleo recipes. So I was happy to have many gluten free and paleo recipes with her new cookbook that I can now use in my Instant Pot.

This coconut curry sea bass literally took 3 minutes to cook in the Instant Pot. I actually swapped out wild Alaskan cod since I had some in the freezer from my favorite fresh seafood source, Vital Choice. The spicy curry sauce took about another 3 minutes to whisk together. I dumped the fish with the coconut curry sauce in the Instant Pot and minutes later I had an amazing dish.

You can throw in some vegetables with this and also serve it over rice. I whipped up a batch of cauliflower rice to mix in with the curry, and it added some more texture and flavor.

I was given a copy of the cookbook for review, but all opinions are always my own.
