What to serve with shrimp scampi instant pot?
I love to make this Low Carb Cheddar Biscuits Recipe. It reminds me of the biscuits they serve at Red Lobster. Yum!
We also love Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe. The bread sticks are perfect for dipping into the yummy sauce.
And of course as far as pasta goes, angel hair is our favorite to enjoy with this dish. You can use whatever you prefer or have on hand though.
Any type of pasta would be delicious. Or you can omit the pasta all together if you are limiting carbs. The shrimp is amazing and has so much flavor you probably wouldn’t even miss it!
Sometimes, I also serve a simple side salad with this as well. Broccoli is also tasty with this dish. Learn how to steam broccoli in the microwave for a quick and easy side dish.

- shrimp (frozen, precooked, devained and peeled)
- salt and pepper to taste
- garlic salt
- lemons, freshly squeezed
- chicken broth (or you can use water)
- fresh parsley

EASY and DELICIOUS!!’
Confusing: it says to add everything to the IP except the Parmesan and the “angel hair parsley.” I think the angel hair pasta goes in the instant pot, and only the Parmesan and parsley are add it after it’s cooked.
I’m so sorry for the confusion. I have updated the recipe. Add the shrimp, lemon juice, garlic salt, pepper and chicken broth. Add the lid and cook this on high pressure for 2 minutes with a quick release. Thank you.
Easy and delicious my family loved it I made 2 batches one with shrimp and one with chicken for the ones that don’t like seafood and it turned out ? tasty.
Which type of shrimp is better for the recipe? The post says to use pre-cooked shrimp but the printable recipe says to use raw shrimp?
