Aja A says:
So quick and easy. This shrimp dish pretty much goes with anything you pair it with cause of its basic ingredients. I made this with my pesto noodles and they worked very well together.
Jessica Scott says:
This lemon pepper shrimp was perfect! I tossed it with spaghetti squash and it was perfect. Such a light and delicious spring dish. I love the garlicky flavors too, it was incredible.
Sarah Gray says:
Adding a few tablespoons of the sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo was perfect! It really changed the flavor and heat of the dish, in the best way.
Anthony Cohen says:
This was really good and easy to make. I did want more heat but instead of using adobo, I added red pepper flakes. Simple, delicious, and perfect tossed with noodles.
Steven Gomes says:
Added 4 tablespoons of the adobo sauce plus one chipotle pepper, chopped. It made the lemon shrimp spicy, flavorful, and delicious. Paired nicely with spiralized sweet potato noodles.

Can this be cooked in the instant pot?
