Place the quinoa, 1 teaspoon salt, and water into the pot.


Assemble pressure lid, making sure the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position. Select PRESSURE and set to high (HI). Set time to 2 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.


While quinoa is cooking, in a bowl, stir together the bread crumbs with butter, parsley, lemon zest and juice, and 1 teaspoon salt. Press panko mixture evenly onto the top of each cod fillet.

Toss the asparagus with olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Lay asparagus evenly on top of quinoa.
