    The shrimp was overcooked and the asparagus was nothing but mush – inedible. What a disappointment as I love both shrimp and asparagus and couldn’t wait to try this recipe. The title says steamed but the directions were clearly pressure cook. I’m new to this so maybe I missed something? But, under manual pressure cook at 1 minute, it takes several minutes to preheat and then at least 15 to depressurize with quick release.
