  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb frozen shrimp
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 lb rotini pasta
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, plus more to serve
  • Chili flakes, to serve


  • Add butter and olive oil to the bottom of Instant Pot. Add frozen shrimp on top (ensure they are frozen!), followed by garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt & pepper, peas, pasta and broth, pushing pasta underneath the liquid as much as possible.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and make sure valve is set to seal. Press the pressure cook button and set to high, then cook for 3 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure then pressure cook for 3 minutes.
  • Do a quick release of the pressure on the Instant Pot by flicking the switch at the top with a spoon. Open the lid when pressure gauge has dropped and the lid opens easily.
  • Stir in parmesan cheese and parsley, then garnish with extra parsley and chili flakes (optional). Serve and enjoy!
