This Instant Pot Shrimp is an easy and delicious dinner that takes just 5 minutes to make! And the shrimp come out just as tasty, if not better, than any other shrimp boil recipe!


1 lb. (450g) of Frozen Shrimp, peeled and deveined (I used frozen extra-large shrimp)

1/4 cup (480mL) Fish Stock

2 Cloves (8g) of Garlic, minced

2 Tbsp. (28g) Salted Butter

1/4 cup Fish Stock

1/2 a Lemon, Juiced

Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Place shrimp and fish stock in the Instant Pot.
  2. For extra-large or colossal-sized frozen shrimp, set the time to zero and cook at low pressure until pressure cooking stops, and the shrimp turn completely pink in color. ***Note: If you're using smaller than extra-large frozen shrimp (tiny-large) cook in saute mode with the fish stock. Again, cook until the shrimp turn pink or reach 120°F (50°C).
  3. Once the shrimp are cooked remove them - and the fish stock/water - from the pot and add in the butter and minced garlic.
  4. Cook until the garlic becomes fragrant, and then add the shrimp back into the pot along with the lemon juice.
  5. Work the shrimp around the pot as it cooks for around 5 minutes.
  6. Serve and enjoy.
