10 Red baby potatoes,  1 13.5 oz Andouille sausage 1 Sweet Onion, roughly  2 tsp Garlic, chopped 1 tbsp + 1 tsp Old Bays 8 tbsp Butter, unsalted 3 ears Corn on the cob, cut into halves or thirds 1 cup chicken broth 1 lb Shrimp, shells on or off (I prefer off) Parsley 1 Lemon

Place the potatoes, andouille sausage, onion, garlic, 1 tbsp Old Bay, and 4 tbsp butter in the liner of the Instant Pot.

Put the corn on the cob on top and pour chicken broth over everything.

Turn the Instant Pot to HIGH and cook for 5 minutes. When the time is up, perform a Quick Release.

Add the shrimp into the pot, replace the lid, and cook on HIGH for another minute. When the time is up, perform another Quick Release.

Melt the remaining butter and mix it with Old Bay. Drizzle the seasoned butter over everything. 

Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley. Serve and enjoy!

A small amount of beer can be added to the pot along with the chicken broth.

Another good addition to the liquid is hot sauce. Add as much to the pot as you’d like.
