It seems like there's a dearth of Instant Pot shrimp recipes out there (and Instant Pot seafood recipes in general), so I just made this Instant Pot shrimp and rice (and beans!) and couldn't be happier. Not only is it possibly the most easy Instant Pot recipe I've made to date, but it tastes delicious and mixes things up in your Instant Pot repertoire from the usual chicken Instant Pot recipes and roasts.
