How To Make Shrimp, Smoked Sausage, and Peppers In the Instant Pot

For this awesome seafood dinner recipe, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • ½ green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, including juice
  • 2 pounds large uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 12 ounces smoked sausage, sliced into ½” sections
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup water

To make it, you begin by sautéing the onions and peppers.  To do so, press the Sauté button on the Instant Pot® and add olive oil to the pot.   Allow it to heat for 30 seconds.  Add the onion and peppers and sauté for 5 minutes until the onions have become translucent.

Add the tomatoes with juice, shrimp, sausage, Old Bay Seasoning, salt, pepper, and water. Lock the Instant Pot lid.

Next, press the Steam button and adjust the time to 0 minutes. (That’s not a typo.  Trust me on this.). When the timer beeps, quick-release the pressure until the float valve drops and then unlock the lid.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the mixture to four bowls, and serve warm.
