I really like this recipe since it's just dump-and-go - the Instant Pot does all the work for you 🙂

Can I double up the recipe?

Sure! If your Instant Pot big enough, feel free to increase the amount of shrimp, veggies and water. Cooking time stays the same.

You can have it as is, or use it to upgrade seafood recipes instead of water.
