How to Cook a Boil in 10 Minutes
Using the Pressure Cooker to cook this Crab and Shrimp Boil meal, means you can have the same great taste of a boil but in less time. We included Snow Crabs, Jumbo Shrimp, Red Potatoes, and Corn on the Cob. You can add Hot Sausage as well to give it that extra hot of flavor.
That is one of the nice things about cooking a boil, you can include the ingredients you enjoy. Mussels are a delicious addition to this Seafood Feast. Just be sure to put the food that takes longer to cook at the bottom of the pot, such as potatoes and corn.
Potatoes and corn are heavier food so they can handle the weight of other ingredients. Put crab legs next and then shrimp should be at the very top because it’s a delicate food.
