Cilantro Coconut Shrimp and Broccoli- Instant Pot [Eat]

Instant Pot, Pressure cooking, Shrimp, Recipe, Cilantro coconut shrimp and broccoli pasta
A while back I was looking for a crockpot and my husband very kindly bought be an Instant Pot, which is more of a pressure cooker. I was a bit disappointed because it had so many settings and all I wanted was a simple old crockpot with high, low and warm settings. My husband's uncle gifted us a crockpot and I was very happy! After a few years, I rediscovered the Instant Pot and started learning more about it and now I am in love. Now, I want to cook absolutely everything in it!
Instant Pot has an app you can download and it has more than 850 recipes! I feel like I just discovered the wheel! All recipes are pretty easy to make. You can find this recipe on their webpage as well, visit The cilantro coconut shrimp and broccoli was very delicious! The coconut, jalapeño, and cilantro are a great combination, who knew! This is not an ad by the way! I just wanted to share my new obsession! I provided a few links in case you are interested in buying and becoming a great cook like me! **wink, wink!

  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 2 cups of cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño (seeded unless you want it spicy)
  • 1 scallion (green part only)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 water
  • 4 ounces of Chinese noodles (I am using rice noodles from Trader Joe's)
  • 10 ounces of peeled shrimp (21-25 shrimps)
  • 6-8 oz of broccoli florets
  • In a blender add coconut milk, cilantro, jalapeno, scallion, garlic, and salt. Blend until smooth. 
  • Pour the sauce into the inner pot and add the water. Select Sauté and adjust to High geat. Bring just to a simmer then turn Instant Pot off. 
  • Break up the noddles (spaghetti in my case) and place them in the pot in a single layer as much as possible. Layer the shrimp and broccoli over the noodles. 
  • Lock the lid and select Pressure Cook or Manual, and adjust the pressure to Low and the time to 10 minutes. After cooking, quick release the pressure. 
  • Unlock the lid and stir the mixture until the broccoli and shrimp are coated with sauce.
