Today we’re making easy tuna steaks in the Instant Pot!

  • Magical Meals In Minutes – Instant Pot Shrimp Boil


Recipe Event – Instant Pot Shrimp Boil

Today we’re making a low country shrimp boil in the Instant Pot!

I love this recipe because true to Magical Meals In Minutes, it only takes 8 minutes to make with Instant Pot! Instead of the old-fashioned way of stewing in a stockpot overnight!

That’s right! I’m giving you back at least 8 hours of your life with this recipe!

And I love this quick recipe for cookouts and outdoor gatherings! It’s always a treat!

Here’s what you need to make a shrimp boil:

  • red or golden potatoes
  • smoked sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • corn on the cobb
  • liquid shrimp & crab boil seasoning
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pound of large or jumbo shrimp
  • ½ cup of melted butter
  • 4 cups of water

Place all ingredients in Instant Pot, make sure all ingredients are submerged in the water, and pressure cook for 8 minutes.

Add the shrimp and let them steam in residual heat in the pot for 5 minutes.

And Voila! Just like that – You have an Instant shrimp boil!

Featured recipe from the show

  • Magical Meals In Minutes – Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks

Recipe Event – Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks

Today we’re using the Instant Pot and the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid to make quick & easy air fryer crispy drumsticks!

You can use this recipe with any chicken or just drumsticks like I have here. All you need is 8-10 pieces of chicken, plus my special Soul Food Pot chicken seasoning, all included on my blog for this recipe!

Garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and red pepper flakes – plus my favorite – oxtail Caribbean all-purpose seasoning. Yum!

Now, for my Southern soul food recipe, we use the Instant Pot to soak the chicken in buttermilk – a key ingredient to making a soft, tender chicken!

The Instant Pot allows us to pressure cook seasoned chicken in the buttermilk in a matter of 20 minutes. A much quicker cooking method instead of soaking the chicken overnight or for 24 hours!

This is why I say we’re making Magical Meals In Minutes!

When the pressure cooking time is complete, pour out the buttermilk and add the Instant Pot air fryer lid – or transfer the chicken to an air fryer.

Air fry for 20 minutes for a crispy, fried-like skin – but much healthier!

Head to my blog to learn how to make even more savory Instant Pot chicken recipes like lemon herb chicken, blueberry glazed chicken, and more!
