Instant Pot Creole Shrimp and Andouille Sausage with Kale
Prep Time 12 minutes
Cook Time 4 minutes
Resting Time (Estimate) 20 minutes
Total Time 36 minutes
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup red bell pepper diced
- ¾ cup red onion diced
- ¾ cup celery diced
- 12 ounces andouille sausage diced (I like Aidell’s)
- 2 cloves garlic crushed or diced
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning mix
- 1 cup broth
- 2 pounds (16-20 size) wild caught shrimp, with shells and tails on, frozen
- 2 cups baby kale coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
Push Saute button on Instant Pot. When hot, add butter to insert and melt. Add pepper, onion and celery; cook for 4 minutes, until soft and transluscent. Stir in diced sausage; cook for 2 minutes, until slightly browned. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add thyme, Creole seasoning and broth to insert. Place frozen shrimp in a steamer insert and place on top of sausage and vegetable mixture. Close lid and seal Instant Pot pressure valve. Select the Manual setting, high pressure, and set the timer to 4 minutes. When done, carefully open valve avoiding the steam, for a quick release (you can place a towel over the valve, if desired.)
Remove steamer basket of shrimp. When able to handle, remove tails and peel shrimp; discard shells. Return peeled shrimp to Instant Pot insert. Stir in kale and cream.
This is delicious served over mashed sweet potatoes.
Note: If you don't have an Instant Pot, you can easily make this in a skillet. Simply use thawed, peeled shrimp.
