Seafood can also be successfully cooked using an Instant Pot: you’ll get a juicy and mouthwatering dish with few ingredients in only 5 minutes!

You can taste this delicious shrimp alone as an appetizer or you can use them to enrich your favorite pasta or rice dishes.

Seafood is healthy, low carb and low calories, so that you can taste it whenever you want, even if you are on a diet.

For this shrimp recipe we use only the saute option. No need to pressure cook the shrimp this time.

Can I use oil?

Sure. Feel free to use 1 tablespoon olive oil instead of butter.
