How to Prepare Frozen Seafood Medley in the Instant Pot
For this recipe all you really need is a bag of frozen seafood medley! That’s right, only 1 ingredient.
My package was 2 lbs but you could use less if you want to and the cooking instruction will be the same.
First you will add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot. Then add in the frozen seafood medley.
Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn the valve to the Sealing Position.
Set the Instant Pot to cook on High pressure for 2 minutes.
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!
What to Serve with Instant Pot Seafood Medley
Wondering what else to serve with your seafood medley to make this into a full meal? There are lots of options for lunch or dinner! It would be especially tasty with some linguine and and creamy garlic white sauce!
