Chili Lime Alaska Salmon in a Pressure Cooker

Chili Lime Alaska Salmon in a Pressure Cooker

This post was sponsored by Alaska Seafood as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

There are two things that probably happened to you over the Holidays. You either got a pressure cooker as a gift, or you have vowed to make 2018 a healthy year by making better food choices. If that’s the case, this ‘Chili Lime Alaska Salmon’ recipe is for you!  Making Alaska salmon in an Instant Pot or pressure cooker is a snap! Not only can you make juicy salmon rich in omega-3 fatty acids in mere minutes, but eating sustainable Alaska Seafood is also good for our planet.

I went to Whole Foods to find my  Alaska Seafood choices, and asked the store’s fishmonger to help direct me to some choices. My family and I try to be good stewards of the planet and seek out sustainably caught seafood whenever possible.

Alaska Salmon Chili Lime

Alaska is our nation’s largest source of domestic seafood – nearly 60 percent of all the wild seafood harvested in the U.S. comes from the pristine waters of Alaska. More importantly, Alaska is the only state with sustainability written into its constitution. In fact, Alaska only harvests as much fish as the environment can handle every fishing season. This careful process allows seafood species to continue to replenish year after year, and not risk over-fishing. This responsible sourcing ensures that there will be delicious Alaska Seafood for future generations, so buying ‘Alaska’ is an easy choice for me as a consumer.

The Whole Food’s Fish Monger was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about Alaska Seafood. He offered fresh Alaska Sockeye salmon in the display case, but as I wasn’t sure which day I’d be preparing dinner, he directed me towards the convenience of flash-frozen Alaska wild caught salmon.

There is a lot of fish out there that is NOT sustainable, so make sure to ASK your local fishmonger or restaurant where your fish comes from. Look for the word “Alaska” on frozen and canned seafood packaging as well as menus. Alaska Seafood is not only a great healthy protein choice for you and your family ( The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that the average American consume 8 ounces of seafood per week, but it’s a choice that promotes sustainability.
