Instant Pot Coconut Fish Stew


Here’s how to make a delicious Instant Pot Coconut Fish Stew using white fish, coconut milk, and chopped vegetables. This easy and healthy dinner recipe can be made in just 25 minutes.



  • 2 Mahi Mahi filets (about 10 ounces total), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 bell peppers, cored and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 13.5-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup reduced sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In the bowl of a 6-quart or 8-quart Instant Pot, combine the chopped fish, bell peppers, onion, coconut milk, vegetable broth, coconut sugar, sea salt, and black pepper.
  2. Lock on the lid and set the time to 5 minutes at high pressure.
  3. When the cooking time is up, use the quick-release to get rid of the pressure.
  4. Carefully remove the lid and stir the ingredients.
  5. Serve the Coconut Fish Stew hot, over your choice of cooked white rice, brown rice, or sautéed cauliflower rice. 


  1. You can use whatever white fish you like for this recipe including Mahi Mahi, halibut, cod, or even salmon. 
  2. You can use light coconut milk, if you prefer. 
  3. Leave out the coconut sugar if you are on a low-sugar, low-carb, or Whole30 diet.
