I’ve been having a ton of fun with my Ninja Foodi. I’ve been making recipes from the cookbook that came with the machine and I’ve also ventured out on my own with these crispy pork carnitas and these chicken wings from frozen.
This shrimp boil recipe came about one night when we were simply tired. We had just got home from a Saturday soccer game for my daughter. I wanted something different for dinner. We didn’t want to go to a restuarant. This was the perfect recipe to make. My Ninja Foodi said “use me. ” So I did.
How to Make Shrimp Boil in the Ninja Foodi
In order to make a Shrimp Boil in the Ninja Foodi, you will want to cook your food in batches. First, you’ll add you andouillee sausage, red potatoes, corn, water, and seasonings and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes, with a quick release.
Once your pressure is released, you’ll add your shrimp and mussels, cover and cook on high pressure for 1 minute. Allow your pressure to natural release for 2 minutes and then quick release the remaining pressure.
Dip your seafood in prepared garlic butter.
Can this be converted to use in other electric pressure cookers?
Yes! I only used the pressure cook function for this recipe so you could use other electric pressure cookers for this recipe as well.
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy Ninja Foodi recipe. Until the next recipe, enjoy 🙂
