Steamed Shrimp and Asparagus (in the Instant Pot)
Number of ingredients: 4
- •1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp, frozen or fresh
- •1 bunch of asparagus
- •1 teaspoon olive oil
- •½ tablespoon Cajun seasoning (or your seasoning of choice – lemon juice with salt and pepper would be delicious too)
- 1.Add 1 cup of water to your Instant Pot.
- 2.Insert the stainless steel steam rack that comes with your Instant Pot to the bottom of the pot with the handles up (or silicone steamer).
- 3.Place the asparagus on the steam rack in a single layer (or silicone steamer) to act as a bed for your shrimp.
- 4.Place the shrimp on top of the asparagus.
- 5.Drizzle the olive oil over the shrimp and then season with the Cajun seasoning (or your seasoning of choice).
- 6.Cover and lock the lid.
- 7.Select “Steam” mode and press the “-” button until it reads 2 minutes and then select “Low Pressure” (the default is “High Pressure”). Also make sure to set the top knob to “Sealing” and not “Venting”. I used frozen shrimp so you’ll want to decrease the time to 1 minute for fresh shrimp.
- 8.The Instant Pot will beep at you when it finishes cooking the shrimp.
- 9.To avoid over-cooking, move the top knob from “Sealing” to “Venting” to manually release the pressure. Once all of the pressure releases the steam will no longer come out of the vent and you’ll be able to open the lid.
