  • 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, on the small side
  • 1 (14-ounce) package smoked sausage, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 ears corn, cut into thirds
  • 1 tablespoon liquid shrimp and crab boil
  • 3 teaspoons creole or cajun seasoning, divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds medium to large shrimp
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Place potatoes, sausage, and corn in the Instant Pot. Pour in 3 cups of water. Add the liquid shrimp and crab boil and 2 1/2 teaspoons of creole seasoning.
  • Put lid on Instant Pot and turn valve to "sealing". Set Instant Pot to Pressure Cook on HIGH for 4 minutes. Keep in mind it will take some time for the pressure to build up.
  • After the 4 minutes is up, do a quick pressure release. Once the pin drops, remove lid. Add the shrimp and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 teaspoon seasoning on them. I like to take the corn out to make more room for the shrimp. Stir in the shrimp. Replace the lid. You want the Instant Pot either off or on warm. Let the residual heat cook the shrimp for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove everything from the Instant Pot with a slotted spoon and place on a serving platter. If desired, sprinkle on more Creole or Cajun seasoning.
  • Place butter and garlic powder in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until butter is melted. Serve with the shrimp boil. The shrimp and potatoes taste wonderful dipped in it.
