Set Instant Pot to sauté mode. Add in coconut oil and chopped onions and sauté.
Once onions become translucent, add in garlic and ginger and continue to sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add in all spices, salt, and pepper. Sauté with onions garlic and ginger for 2-3 minutes.
Add in fresh or thawed shrimp (deveined, peeled, and cleaned). Mix well with spices and onions. Then add coconut milk. Stir well making sure to get bits from the bottom of the pan.
Cancel sauté mode. Set instant pot to low (make sure it’s on low!) pressure mode and set the timer to 3 minutes. Close the lid and move the valve to seal.
Once finished pressure cooking, release steam immediately by moving the valve to the vent. Once the steam is fully released, remove the lid and turn off the instant pot. Remove insert from the instant pot so the shrimp doesn’t keep cooking.
Stir the curry and taste. Adjust spice and salt to your liking.
Garnish with fresh cilantro and enjoy!
