Variations Ideas

  • Type of Pasta – We love to serve this meal with angel hair pasta, but you can also use spaghetti or linguine.
  • Seasoning – Feel free to add in additional spices to what you prefer. For an extra hint of spice, add in a teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
  • Broth – We used chicken broth, but you can also use chicken stock or a cooking wine. We love the flavors of sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio.

Step by Step Instructions

Melting butter in the instant pot

Step 1 – Turn the instant pot to the sauté setting.  Add in the butter and olive oil and cook until the butter is melted. 

Adding minced garlic to the instant pot with melted butter

Step 2 – Add the minced garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the garlic is aromatic.  

Adding the white wine to the instant pot

Step 3 – Stir in the wine and cook for approximately 3 more minutes until the wine is reduced.  

Adding the seasoning to the broth mixture in the instant pot

Step 4 – Add in the chicken broth, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Stir to combine all the ingredients and then bring the mixture to a boil. 

Mixing in the pasta to the instant pot

Step 5 – Once boiling, turn off the instant pot and stir in the angel hair pasta.  Make sure that the pasta is covered in the liquid (add more broth if needed). 

Adding in the shrimp to the instant pot

Step 6 – Place the raw shrimp on top of the pasta in the instant pot and pressure cook.

  • Step 7 – Seal the instant pot and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes.  
  • Step 8 – After the cook time, quick release the pressure from the instant pot.  
  • Step 9 – Toss the pasta to coat it all with the sauce from the instant pot.  
  • Step 10 – Serve topped with the fresh chopped parsley and Parmesan Cheese. Then garnish with lemon zest for a delicious meal idea.

Recipe Tips

  • Burn Notice – Make sure the noodles are fully submerged into the broth before adding in the shrimp.
  • Combining Ingredients – Toss the pasta and shrimp together after cooking. This will create a delicious buttery sauce to serve with the shrimp.

Serving Suggestions

We love to serve this shrimp scampi with a side salad and breadsticks. This allows you to make sure that you get every last drop of the sauce.

We also add a side of Air fryer broccoli for a complete meal idea.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftovers

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. Leftovers will last about 3-4 days. We think the leftovers are even better the next day as the broth really marinates in the shrimp and noodles.

How to Reheat

We recommend reheating leftovers in the microwave or on the stovetop.

    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?

    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.

  3. Carrie says:

    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.

  4. Kathy says:

    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.
