1. To make the Instant Pot creamy shrimp soup: In your Instant Pot in Saute mode, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and cook the shrimp on both sides for 4-7 minutes or until they become completely opaque on the outside. Transfer the shrimp to a shallow plate and set aside.

2. In the Instant Pot, still in saute mode, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and cook the onions, carrot, and celery for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and diced potatoes and continue to cook for 1 minute before adding paprika, Cayenne pepper, thyme, and bay leaf. Cook for 1 minute more, stirring constantly, then add chicken stock and softened cream cheese. Close the lid and set to pressure cook for 2 minutes.

3. When time is up, do a quick release and carefully remove the lid. Add the heavy cream into the soup. Stir until the cream is incorporated and allow the chowder to heat through in reheat mode. Adjust seasonings to preference. Divide the creamy potato shrimp soup into bowls and serve warm topped with grilled shrimps. Top with grated parmesan and chopped parsley for extra flavor. Enjoy!

How to Make Instant Pot Shrimp Soup Tips:

  • To make Instant pot shrimp soup, you can use shrimp with tails on or off. 
  • Buy shrimp (or prawns) already deveined, shelled and cleaned, and you have yourself such an easy recipe. 
  • Frozen shrimp is okay for this recipe, but fresh wild-caught shrimp tend to have a better flavor.
  • You can use reduced-fat cream, light cream, or half and half instead of heavy cream. A good low-calorie substitution is evaporated milk. If you choose to go dairy-free, coconut cream is also excellent!

No Instant Pot? For the stovetop version, follow the same steps except cooking time will extend to approx. 20 minutes – until potatoes and carrots are done. Add cream at the end and give a good stir to combine.

    The soup was delicious. I like my meals seasoned and doctored it up a bit: - added 1/4 tsp salt & 1 cube vegetable bouillon - 1/4 cumin - sprinkle of curry - sprinkle of Old Bay - added more cayenne for spice - increased thyme by 1/4 - puréed 1/4 of soup for thickness - note: didn’t add heavy cream or parmesan
