If you are a fan of shrimp, then you need to try this instant pot shrimp Jambalaya recipe. It is extremely savory and will certainly satisfy all of your family members.

This Instant pot shrimp jambalaya is a recipe which I have personally experimented with over the years. However, the end result is a comfort food dish and delicious shrimp that is perfect to come home to after a busy day.

The ways of cooking shrimp are a variety. We can find Japanese style fried shrimp, shrimp etouffee… But the key is to avoid overcooking, as a result, you will get less flavorful shrimp. Because it does not need long to cooking. Usually, once the shell begins to separate you should removing and rinse it with cold water by using a colander.

If you prefer using your instant pot to cooking the shrimp, as I do, it provides you a variety of ways to cooking, like saute, stir-fried, grill, boiled, steamed… One thing more you should take into account is the size of shrimp; the larger it is, the harder it is to cook, which increases the longer of cooking.
