Deliciously Simple Instant Pot Bang Bang Shrimp

Have I mentioned lately how much I adore my Instant Pot? Oh my gosh, I’m in love with this thing! I recently made Bang Bang Shrimp for dinner and these kids licked their plates clean! 

Ingredients:
1 bag frozen shrimp, thawed
16oz spaghetti noodles, broken in half
4.5 cups of water
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
3 tsp minced garlic
3/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
1/4 cup lime juice

Directions:
1. Place dry spaghetti in bottom of Instant Pot and add garlic, salt, oil, and water.
2. Seal lid and cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes.
3. When done, turn off Instant Pot and use quick release.
4. In bowl, combine mayo, chili sauce, and lime juice until smooth.
5. Pour mixture over noodles and add shrimp; mix well.
6. Set Instant Pot to saute and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce and shrimp are heated through.

*I used frozen XS shrimp because it’s what I had on hand. You can use raw shrimp or any other size if you’d rather. Just be sure if you use raw shrimp that you saute for long enough to cook them all the way through. Salmonella is not your friend.

This dinner has been requested approximately 11 billion times since I made it. Every single person loved it! I’m definitely adding this to our regular dinner rotation!

Easy Instant Pot Orange Chicken

I mentioned recently that I bought an Instant Pot. I love this thing! I don’t know why I waited so long. I’ve been collecting recipes on Pinterest that I want to try. I found a version of this one but I tweaked it to fit our family’s tastes and needs. It came out delicious and it was so easy! Seriously, this was the second thing I made in the Instant Pot and it came out perfectly. 

 

Ingredients:
1-2 lbs chicken tenders cut into bite size pieces
1 cup BBQ sauce
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 cup orange juice
4-6 tsp cornstarch
1 jar orange marmalade

Directions:
1. Put chicken, bbq sauce, soy sauce, and orange juice in bottom of Instant Pot.
2. Cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes.
3. When done, turn Instant Pot off and use quick release to vent.
4. Combine 1 cup of BBQ liquid with cornstarch until smooth and stir back into Instant Pot.
5. Add marmalade and stir.
6. Turn Instant Pot to saute and set for 6 minutes, stirring often until sauce thickens.
7. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
8. Serve with steamed broccoli over rice.

I highly recommend this dinner! It’s definitely being added to our regular dinner rotation! I love any meal that can be on the table in less than 15 minutes!
