Instant Pot Low Country Boil {gluten free, healthy}

Sharing is caring!

If I’m being honest, I don’t use my Instant Pot often. I feel like it’s too bulky to pull out of the pantry on a regular basis and it’s too large to just leave out on the counter. But it was worth the cost and I keep it around just for this one particular recipe…a good ol’ Low Country Shrimp Boil!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious meal!

Ingredients:

  • 1 12oz package of cooked and deveined large shrimp with tails on, still frozen
  • 1 12oz package of uncured polish sausage, cut into chunks (or your favorite smoked sausage)
  • 1 pound of baby red potatoes, cut in half
  • 4 ears of corn, cut into thirds
  • 1/2 of a large yellow onion, cut into strips
  • 1/2 tbsp + 1tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp + 1 tsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 cups water, divided

Directions:

Place potatoes, corn, onions, and sausage in the Instant Pot. In a measuring cup, add one cup water, 1/2 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning, and 1/2 tbsp Cajun Seasoning, and stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the potatoes, corn, onions, and sausage. *I always make sure my potatoes are on the bottom so they can absorb the juices for more flavor

Make sure the Instant Pot valve is pointing to “sealing” and set the Instant Pot to Manual for 7 minutes. Once it’s finished, manually release pressure.

Add shrimp to pot. In a measuring cup, add 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning, and 1 tsp Cajun Seasoning. Stir to combine and pour over shrimp *I sprinkled a little extra Old Bay on top because my hubby loves it, but it’s too overpowering for most people

Make sure valve is pointing to “sealing” and set the Instant Pot to Manual for 3 minutes. When it’s finished, manually release pressure.

Drain and serve on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for easy clean-up! Feeds 4-6 people

I have to admit, I’ve never had leftovers when I’ve made this meal, but you can store them in an airtight container for up to 2 days. I would not recommend freezing the leftovers.

Notes:

  • You can use whatever potatoes you like, just cut them up into 1 inch chunks so they can absorb the flavors and cook through
  • Optional dipping sauce: add 1/2 tsp Cajun Seasoning to 1/4 cup melted butter
  • This recipe can easily be multiplied but you’ll want to cook it in batches so it all cooks thoroughly
