Instant Pot Garlic Butter Shrimp with Broccoli

When I’m looking for a low-carb meal that’s still rich in flavor, I turn to my Instant Pot (get yours here: This delicious garlic butter shrimp and broccoli is fast, easy and delicious!

Tender shrimp and healthy broccoli are brought together in only 15 minutes with a delicate white wine and garlic sauce that you’ll love. A healthy sprinkle of parmesan cheese at the end provides an extra layer to this wonderful dish.

For best results, use thawed shrimp that are marked “31-40” in size. That means there’s between 31 and 40 shrimp per pound. That size will give you the best results when paired with bite-sized broccoli florets.

Pro Tip: If your shrimp aren’t quite opaque when you open the pot, turn on the Sauté function and cook and stir for a couple of minutes to desired doneness.
