  • Stir in chicken broth, clam juice, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 6 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, for 5 minutes. Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • While pressure is releasing on the pot, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook until shrimp are opaque, about 3 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid on the Instant Pot®.

  • Stir shrimp, peas, Parmesan cheese, and remaining butter into rice mixture. Divide among bowls and serve.
