    It’s so nice to have such a quick meal for weeknights. Spinach and asparagus sounds so good in this rice dish. Gorgeous pictures too by the way.

    The bright orange of the shrimp and the green from the asparagus and spinach offer a lovely treat for the eyes. Love that it is made in the instant pot. A very good healthy idea for a busy day . Thank you for sharing !

    I love the idea of Instant Pot risotto and a lemon-shrimp version sounds delish!

    That looks so yummy!. And, not only is the presentation spectacular, but it is colorful and well-balanced. (I love color!) This dish includes many ingredients that I love. I know what I will be dishing up for my family next week. Thanks for sharing!

    This looks amazing! I actually love every single ingredient in this! I can’t believe this is something you make in an Instant Pot – now I’m going to have to finally give in and buy one!

    I love this instant pot, it is so versatile. My mum used to make risotto in the pressure cooker, and when you are short of time it is a fast solution. Lemon and shrimps is a great combination.

    Ok, I think you may have convinced me it’s time to get on the instant pot bandwagon. These shrimp look perfectly cooked! I’ve held off on the instant pot because I HATE pressure cookers. I saw one explode when I was little. But of course the instant pot is quite different 🙂 And if it can give me risotto like this! Yum!

      I keep hearing about explosions with old pressure cookers. Sounds scary! LOL. The technology is probably a lot better now.

      An Instant Pot is a pressure cooker, it has the ability to slow-cook as well. If you have a normal crock pot it’s probably not the same.

    Since I am new to the ‘pot head’ family, is there something else I could use instead of asparagus & spinach in this dish? I have a very picky son and no way would he eat it like it is. This sure sounds good. Thanks

      You could omit veggies altogether or add whatever veggies you think he will eat.

    When you say “cook for 8 minutes” are you saying to put on pressure cook mode? Apologies I’m very new to this!

      No worries! Yes I mean push manual and then set it for 8 minutes.

          Press Manual and then set the cooking time. It defaults to high pressure.

    I would prefer not to purchase a whole bottle of seasoning for one recipe. Would you have a recommendation for a substitute spices to use instead of the McCormick’s Montreal Chicken seasoning?

      The main ingredients in this seasoning are garlic, onion, parsley, red pepper, paprika, and green bell peppers.

    This was delicious!

    I had a couple questions/notes based upon making it that confused me…

    1) In step 3, you say to remove the asparagus from the pot. Are you supposed to leave the onion/garlic in the pot? I didn’t really have a way to separate them, and assumed you would be removing everything. But other risotto recipes said to build the risotto on top of the onion, so I am concerned I shouldn’t have removed it.

    2) My Instant Pot duo doesn’t have a manual mode. It looks like they changed the buttons (look at the pictures on Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FLYWNYQ/ ). Do I just set it to “Pressure Cook” and then set the timer to 8:00? I noticed when I did that, it took it a few minutes to come up to pressure before the 8 minute timer started. And then when the timer was done and I released pressure, the risotto was NOT done. I had to keep stirring it on “Sauté” until it thickened.

    3) In step 10, you say to move the risotto to one side of the pot. Even when I stirred until thickened, it did not want to stay on one side of the pot. And that didn’t leave enough room to cook 1# of shrimp, wilt spinach, add the asparagus back in, etc. We ended up just cooking the shrimp/spinach/veggies in another pan and stirring them into the risotto afterwards, then adding the lemon juice.

    I know sometimes the goal is “one pot meal”, but it seemed a bit ambitious to try to fit and cook all of it in the instant pot. Would it be easier to simply do the risotto in the pot and the other items on the stove, and then incorporate them together?

    Either way, though, this recipe was REALLY good. It was the first time either of us had ever made or eaten risotto (my SO has a poultry allergy so she can’t eat anything made with chicken stock), and we were both blown away. So thanks for posting, and if you can give clarification on the points above it would help!

      Thanks so much for trying this recipe! Manual setting does refer pressure cook. I did cook my risotto for 8 minutes and it was done. With different IP models it makes sense that this may vary and you may have to modify for the model that you use. I also have a video of myself prepping this dish at the very top of this post. This is a great illustration of how to answer a few questions that you have. Shrimp cooks very fast, it takes a couple of minutes. I was able to move the risotto over and leave enough room to saute the shrimp. The risotto doesn’t have to fit perfectly on one side. The shrimp will cook from the heat of the pot. I did remove the asparagus from the pot, leaving the onions and garlic. Refer to the video for how I did this. I used tongs. You can cook the asparagus first, remove and then add the onions and garlic if you wish. My website focuses on quick recipes, so this was my approach to saving time. Just my preference.

    This recipe was amazing and by far one of my favorites! The lemon really stands out. My only suggestion would be to add the asparagus and remove it before adding the onion. Otherwise, it gets messy.

    Many thanks for sharing this one! We’ve made it about 3X in our home by now, and it’s a hit every time.
