Low-Country Boil
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.
