You’ll notice that the shrimp required in this tasty Instant Pot® recipe are frozen. Shrimp have a much lower cooking time than some of the other Low-Country Boil ingredients, so it helps if your shrimp are frozen so they don’t overcook and dry out. If you have fresh shrimp, freeze them for an hour after cleaning before adding them to the dish.

    While it was fast and simple, the flavor wasn’t there. I think some crab boil or additional spices would have helped.

    Xcellent! I should have cut potatoes into quarters as they were slightly over done and i added more spice because i like my food hot, but was a delicious and quick meal for 2 with plenty of leftovers for work tomorrow.

    This was really good. I thought my potatoes were in big enough chuncks, but they were complete mush. I put in two seasonings probably about 2 tablespoons each. I like spice and it had good spice. Otherwise, id make this again, for sure.
