I caved… After months, no, at least a couple years of resisting the Instant Pot, I finally broke down and bought one.

For the longest time I told myself the last thing I needed was another countertop appliance. After all, we own several slow cookers, a multi-cooker, and every other kitchen gadget imaginable.

How great could the Instant Pot be?!

Well, if like me, you have been on the fence about getting an Instant Pot, I’m here to tell you I only wish I had bought one sooner.

It is so fast and efficient, it makes one-pot cooking even more appealing.

For the time being, let’s talk about this Easy Instant Pot Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta.

You may have heard of, or better yet tried, Bang Bang Shrimp from the popular seafood restaurant Bonefish Grill. Although we don’t visit Bonefish often, the few times I have been I can’t get over their signature appetizer of deep-fried shrimp coated in a spicy mayo and sweet chili sauce.

How to Make Instant Pot Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta Recipe

We’ve played with ways to make Bang Bang Shrimp at home, along with lighter variations that don’t require batter and fry oil.

However my favorite Bang Bang spin-off is turning it into a quick Instant Pot seafood pasta dish. That way, you get the comfort of noodles with the spicy sweet wow-factor of the asian spiced shrimp!

Best Instant Pot Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta Recipe

Since my recent Instant Pot purchase, I’ve been IPing many new recipes in it, in order to see how it effects cook time, taste, and texture.

What a shock to discover pasta is perfectly pressure cooked in 4 minutes in the Instant Pot! Preparing pasta this way removes several steps, like draining off hot boiling water, so you don’t waste time and energy in the kitchen. This also reduces pasta safety hazards.

    Thank you for the IP recipe. I have owned and used an Instant Pot a year and a half, and it IS the neatest thing since..?? I would be delighted to see more recipes from you using it. Though I use it a lot, I am always looking for more ways to make delicious, quicker meals using my pot. I will make it in a few days after I get to grocery for an ingredient I am out of.

    Yay! We love your recipes. Please do more IP recipes! BTW mac-n-cheese is really easy too. 1lb elbow macaroni, 4cups water, 2tsp ground mustard, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 4tbl butter, 1tsp salt. High pressure 4 minutes and quick release. We then stir in 4 ounces cream cheese and couple cups of Mexican shredded cheese (it’s what we have in our frig). Add a cup of milk, stir and garnish with bacon bits. Yum.

    Easy adaptable recipe.  Halved it using linguine.  Added red bell pepper and bamboo shoots with the shrimp.  Was delish!

    How would I double this recipe? Thank you!

      Hi Elizabeth,

      I have not doubled this recipe yet, but I have doubled other IP pasta recipes. You should be fine to make it as-is X2 with plenty of room in the pot. :)

    Yum! What would you suggest if I was to use chicken instead of shrimp? I’m just out of shrimp right now. Maybe saute chicken pieces in separate pan a little then add them when you would add the shrimp? Thanks!
