  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • pinch of saffron threads
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked arborio rice
  • 1 cup (250 ml) chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry white wine
  • 1 pound (480 g) large shrimp, unpeeled, deveined
  • 1 pound (480 g) clams
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro


Step 1

Melt the butter in an electric instant pot turned to saute mode. Add onion and saute, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and continue cooking for a further 1-2 minutes.

Step 2

Add all dry ingredients to the cooker and cook for 1 minute, or until spices are fragrant. Add the rice and mix well to combine.

Step 3

Pour in the broth and wine. Using a wooden spatula, deglaze the pot by scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the cooker.

Step 4

Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 6 minutes.

Step 5

Using the Quick Release method, bring pressure to normal. Carefully unlock and open the lid. Add shrimp, clams, and peas.

Step 6

Switch the cooker to saute mode. Cook, stirring often until shrimp and clams are cooked through and most of the liquid has been absorbed.

Step 7

Remove cooked paella from the instant pot and transfer it to a large plate. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Serve hot garnished with lemon wedges.
