    I agree on cook time. Pulled it at 8 minutes and it was still too long. Probably 6 to 7 minutes would be fine.

    I followed the suggestions in the other reviews and reduced time to 5 minutes and it was still a mushy mess. Flavor is good. But no one like mushy shrimp.

    I followed the directions exactly . Everytime it reached pressure id get a burn warning. Cancel and try again.
    Burn warning again . Rice kept sticking to the bottom .
    I cokls get the pressure build withiut repeatwd burn warnings ? . First time trying an instant pot . Not impressed

    Slime Green Cat,

    The burn warning would indicate that not enough liquid was used. If no additional liquid was added than it will repeat the burn notice.

    Founs the rice too soft. Did not read reviews before making so missed seeing recommendations to cut time back.

    I made this and it was delicious! Next time I will substitute the water for chicken or vegetable stock, add in mango chunks, apple chunks, pineapple chunks or raisins to give it the traditional sweet taste to compliment the savoury taste. I also decreased cooking time to 5 minutes.

    I made this last night for a dinner without gluten, using long grain brown rice, two pounds of shrimp, 1 cup of chicken stock, and at 5 minutes. Too much liquid but the shrimp was great, the rice of course soupy. But no IBS so it was a success. Next time i will use 3/4 cup and it will be perfect for two pounds of shrimp!

    Changed curry powder for cajun seasoning and followed recipe. Am really happy how dish turned out. Shrimp were succulent and perfectly cooked. Next time will add tomatoes and substitute long grain rice for arborio and use chicken stock instead of water.
    Cooking shrimp from frozen is the way to go in an Instant pot!!

    followed the recipe but added cajun seasoning.

    I got confused because the recipe didn’t say “Pressure cook” so i kept it on Sautee and did it for 15 mins. Came out perfect. I later watched the video and noticed it was pressure but I ended up with the same result. I’ll know for next time.

    Made this tonight as per recipe. Was delicious. Rice was not mushy and flavor great. May try with cajun spice next time…sounds good!

    Tasted great although thought shrimp was a little overdone and a bit too watery (possibly my measurements)

    Super tasty! I agree to cut down the cooking time, I cut down to 6 mins and it was still a little too long. I added ginger and cinnamon (it balanced the flavors super well!) and topped it with green onions.
    I made mine with tail-on shrimp but that was a lot of work to detail while eating

    Good flavor. Mine came out a little mushy. Might need to decrease the tiMe but the flavor was there. Topped with red pepper flakes to give it a kick. Worked great!

    Would have given this recipe one star but the flavor is actually pretty good. Followed as written and the shrimp ends up overcooked and the rice still way too tough. Seems like many people have issues with this recipe so I’m not sure why I tried it. Definitely will never make it again!

    Love this dish. Might add raisins next time like someone else suggested to offset the curry flavour. I cooked it on high for eight minutes and let sit for five before releasing pressure. Cooking for ten minutes would of been way too long in my opinion.

    It was a super easy dish to cook but the taste of the curry overpowered the ingredients .. also it turned out too mushi .. next time I’ll cut down the amount of curry and maybe a little less water.
