Instant Pot Wild Cod Stew

Ok @tristynleighh this is for YOU…and anyone else that wants a yummy rich tasting single serve stew that cooks in 8 minutes!

Instant Pot Wild Cod Stew

1 piece 4 oz wild cod defrosted, I use Sizzlefish *
Olive oil, I love kouzini brand olive oil from Greece
1 small shallot, chopped
2 inch piece of the white of a leek, chopped
1/2 inch worth of grated fresh ginger
1/2 carrot, large cubes
1 stalk celery, large cubes
4 inch piece of daikon, large cubes
1 inch ring of butternut, cubed (or parsnip or sweet potato)
2 pieces of asparagus, chopped
Few sprinkles of garlic gold nuggets (awesome pantry item!)
1 bay leaf (I have a tree so I like to use them)
Few sprigs of parsley chopped
Optional add ins: I added purple radish and fennel fronds from my garden because I had them.
1 cup water (a little more if you like more broth)
If you prefer a stew texture, mix 1 tsp of Otto’s Cassava flour in to the water.

Turn Instant Pot on to sauté function.
Drizzle olive oil generously to coat the bottom of the pan.
Add in shallots, ginger, leeks and sauté while chopping the other veggies.
Add all other veggies and herbs in and pour in the water or water/cassava flour combo.
Place the defrosted fish atop the veggies.
Lock lid in place and hit Steam and reduce time to 8 minutes.
Rapid release the pressure when done.
Flake the fish in to the soup and pour it all in to a large bowl.
Sprinkle with salt to taste, I use Redmond Real Salt.
Optional garnish with hamama microgreens**.

* Now more than ever in this Coronavirus era, I am so glad I subscribe to a monthly box of Sizzlefish frozen fish, delivered to my door. This fish is frozen on the boat so it is MAXIMALLY fresh and it is delicious every time! They are approximately 4 oz portions and individually wrapped. I defrost them in a water bath which is quick and convenient. If you follow my link you will get 10% off your first box. I have the base level subscription and I usually order wild cod, haddock and one of their salmon options.

** Speaking of Coronavirus, in this time of limiting trips to the grocery store, there is NO better time to grow microgreens at home, right on your windowsill or countertop! They can be up to 40 times as nutritious as mature greens!!! The hamama system is super simple. It literally takes about 2 minutes to set up…no joke! The greens grow in about a week. Trust me, you will LOVE this system!!! Can’t say enough good things about it. One of my ALL time favorite products!! I recently upgraded to the white ceramic growing tray which is totally gorgeous!
