Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Once the panel reads HOT, add butter, shallot, and garlic. Cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Add wine and quickly deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Cancel Saute mode.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 12 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Select Saute function.

  • Stir in shrimp and the remaining 1/2 cup of broth. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese until melted, then add parsley. Serve immediately and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning to taste.

Delicious according to the family. I added Cajun spices in before the cheese and then we individually added more. Made as written. Read More

I made this as a main meal and doubled it up. I added red and orange peppers with the garlic and at the end added fresh cut tomatoes with the parmesan cheese. Totally delicious and will be made again. The fact it's made in the Instant Pot makes it even better and easier. Read More
