The creaminess of the potatoes along with the delightful savoriness of the clams make it a truly comforting dish, filling you with warmth and deliciousness.
Clam Chowder with Shrimp | Pressure Cooker Recipe
I know, I know. This recipe isn’t particularly low in carbs, but what it lacks in keto friendliness it makes up for in absolute deliciousness.
And, as you’ve probably noticed from the title of Clam Chowder with Shrimp, I’ve decided to add shrimp to the mix. If you’ve tried any of my recipes you’ve probably noticed that I can’t seem to leave a recipe alone.
But I can assure that the addition of shrimp to the recipe is an absolute delight.
WHY ADD SHRIMP TO THE CLAM CHOWDER WITH SHRIMP?
I mean, the short answer is that it’s delicious. But I will tell you what gave me the idea.
I try not to ramble on about personal things on the blog, but I like this story 🙂
When Roger and I first met, we went to Oregon Beach. It was an absolutely magical time in a beautiful place.
Out on the beach was a little shack that served something called slumgullion. I had no idea what it was–which of course meant I had to try it because I love trying new things.
Roger said it was one of his favorites, so we ordered it. And then…
Out comes this HUGE sourdough boule, filled with clam chowder–sprinkled with perfect, tiny, pink shrimp on top. You take a spoon, you mix it all up, and you have at it.
So I’ve been wanting to make a Clam Chowder with Shrimp for ages.
The only thing is, I can’t be bothered with fiddly recipes where you brown the bacon, cook the potatoes, then you add this or that… I need one pot, pour and cook recipes so that I can finish cooking without getting distracted by a shiny object.
So I finally got around to it, and here we are.
WHY USE AN INSTANT POT OR PRESSURE COOKER TO MAKE CHOWDER
The best part of all this is that it’s super easy to make thanks to your Instant Pot. The Instant Pot makes the recipe painless and quick while infusing the soup with a flavor that only a pressure cooker can. I just love it when my Instant Pot can make one of my favorite recipes even easier to make!

- 1 14 oz canned clams with liquid
- 1 cup cooked, small salad shrimp
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch + 1/4 cup water mixed into a slurry optional
Place bacon, onions, potatoes, thyme, bay leaves, salt, pepper clam juice and water into the inner liner of the Instant Pot.
Set Instant Pot on high for 6 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, release all pressure.
Use a potato masher to roughly mash and thicken the soup.
Turn the Instant pot on Sauté. When it is hot, add the cornstarch and water mixture and bring the soup to a boil to thicken. Once it boils, pour in clams, shrimp, the cream and fresh parsley. Stir and allow it to cook a minute or two to heat through, and then serve.
