Ingredients

  • 1 pound dried spaghetti
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 4 1/4 cup water
  • 1 pound raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deviened
  • 3/4 cup light mayonnaise

Instructions

  • Break the spaghetti noodles in half and place in the Instant Pot. Add the garlic, coconut oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and water. Cover and lock the lid into place. 
  • Set the Instant Pot on "Pressure Cook High" for 4 minutes. Once it is finished cooking, turn the Instant Pot "Off", then press the button to "Quick Release" the steam, until the valve button drops.

Notes

STOVETOP INSTRUCTIONS: Boil the pasta as directed on the package and drain in a colander, reserving 1 cup pasta water. Place the coconut oil, garlic, bang bang sauce (step 2,) and shrimp in the empty pot. Set over medium heat. Pour the pasta into the sauce and toss to coat. Cook until the shrimp are pink. If needed, add some of the reserved pasta water to loosen the sauce.
