Ingredients

  • 12 oz. linguine or spaghetti (omit for Keto, see subs for low-carb/GF in notes)
  • 1 ½ lbs. large raw shrimp peeled and deveined tails on/or removed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced ( about 1 Tbsp) ( more or less to taste)
  • ½ cup dry white wine like Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc or chicken broth
  • ½ cup chicken stock or broth
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • ½ medium lemon or 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil (salt water if desired). Add pasta and cook according to directions (you’ll want the pasta to be “al dente”). 
  • While pasta is cooking, Rinse shrimp and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add olive oil and butter to Instant Pot and select the SAUTE function (low heat). When hot add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add white wine, chicken stock and red pepper flakes (if using). Stir with a wooden spoon and make sure no bits of garlic are stuck to the bottom of the pot. 
  • Turn off SAUTE mode (by selecting CANCEL). Add shrimp and lock lid in place. Set vent to SEALING. Set Instant Pot to Manual/Pressure Cook for 1 minute on high pressure.  Once cooking cycle has completed do a Quick Release (QR) to release the pressure. 
  • Add cooked pasta to Instant Pot and stir to combine with shrimp. Squeeze the juice of one lemon (about 1 Tbsp) over pasta and shrimp. Stir in chopped parsley. Serve, garnish with grated Parmesan cheese if desired. 

Notes

  • If using frozen shrimp- add frozen shrimp to Instant Pot and increase cook time by 2 minutes ( 3 mins instead of 1 mins)
  • For lower carb options serve over cauliflower rice, zoodles or Kohlrabi linguine
