Instant Pot Shrimp Alfredo

Recipe Details

  • Recipe Makes: 2 generous servings
  • Approximate Prep and Cook Time: 30-40 minutes
  • Suggested Pairing: Chardonnay
Cook shrimp to an internal temperature of 165°F.
  • 1 lb large shrimp 21/25
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 16 oz fettuccine broken in half
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  1. Thaw shrimp (if frozen) in cold water. Remove shells and tails.
  2. Add chicken broth, garlic, nutmeg, and salt to pot and mix well.
  3. Add fettuccine noodles, making sure to spread them apart as much as possible. DO NOT STIR!
  4. Add cream, making sure that all noodles are submerged. AGAIN, DO NOT STIR!
  5. Lock lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure.
  6. Meanwhile, using microplane, grate parmigiano-reggiano cheese.
  7. Mix pasta and sauce well, making sure to break up any noodles that may be stuck together. Add all cheese to the pot and mix well.
  8. Finally, add shrimp to pot and mix, making sure to submerge all shrimp. Return lid to pot and let sit for about 10 minutes. The shrimp will cook in the residual heat, and the sauce will thicken the longer it sits.
  9. Serve topped with cracked black pepper (and maybe more cheese).
