1.Which cooking method is right for you?Cooking method-1- I tried making this recipe in a 3-quart Instant pot and a 8-quart Instant Pot. Result? Fried rice in 8-quart was much more firmer that the 3-quart. So, if you a own a larger Instant Pot, then use that for firmer rice.3.Rice - any long grain white basmati rice can be used. Rinse rice in a colander until water runs clear. Let it hang out in the strainer at least for 5 minutes, to drain almost all the water.4.Shrimp - Fresh or thawed frozen shrimp may be used. To thaw frozen shrimp - Place shrimp in a large bowl and fill the bowl with cold or room temperature water. Let it sit for about 10 minutes until thawed (the time will depend on the quantity of shrimp). Drain shrimp and pat dry with paper towels.5.Salt - Please adjust salt according to your taste. I used 33% less sodium chicken stock and found ¾ teaspoon to be perfect for this shrimp and rice recipe. If you are using regular sodium chicken stock, then reduce salt.
