You can use any variety of seafood medley for this recipe. The package I used contained shrimp, scallops, squid, and mussels.

When finished, use the Quick Release function to let the pressure out. When the pin has dropped, it is safe to open the lid of the Instant Pot.

Use a slotted spoon to scoop out the cooked seafood, leaving the water behind.

Or you could use a colander to strain the seafood. Just be sure to use oven mitts when handling the pot as it will be very hot.

Serve hot and enjoy!
