Shrimp with Coconut Milk
What’s more, it’s a healthy shrimp recipe with no packages or mixes.
I’ve been struggling to get shrimp done just right in an Instant Pot. Okay, I’m not sure why I’m even trying. Shrimp cooks so quickly it should be a non-issue to cook it stove top.
Some of it is just that I don’t like failing and I failed with shrimp in a Instant Pot two or three times and it irritated me.
Shrimp is too expensive to waste like that anyway. So I was determined to try it. With thawed shrimp, not even frozen, which would have been easier.
So I decided the only way this would work in an Instant Pot is Pot-in-Pot.

Set your Instant Pot at 4 minutes for low pressure, release pressure quickly and mix well. Add a little extra coconut milk if you need.
Please note: To get the shrimp to cook in the time specified, ensure that:
- Your shrimp are between 21-25 per pound
- They are fully submerged in the coconut milk before you cook
- You use a stainless steel bowl to best conduct heat
- You use a low trivet.
Otherwise just add 1-2 minutes to the cook time, or open, stir, and close the pot back up and let the shrimp cook in the residual heat of the coconut milk.
