Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 5 tbsp dry white wine
  • 125 grams linguine pasta
  • 200 grams king prawns/shrimps
  • 1 red chilli seeded and chopped OR 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 10 sun-dried tomatoes or fresh cherry tomatoes halved
  • salt and black pepper
  • basil leaves or rosemary sprig optional
  • 750 ml Vegetable stock for Instant Pot only


Prawn linguine on the stovetop:

  • Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a frying pan and toss garlic with chilli until garlic is fragrant.
  • Add white wine and cook until reduced by 1/3, about 1 minute.
  • Add prawns, and cook for a few minutes while stirring regularly until they turn pink.
  • Add cherry tomatoes, and cook for a couple of more minutes.
  • Drain pasta, and toss in prawn mixture. Season with salt, black pepper, and rosemary or basil if using. Serve immediately.

Prawn linguine in the Instant Pot

  • Set your Instant Pot to "Saute medium", melt the butter and saute the garlic and sundried tomatoes. Add wine, and cook until reduced by 1/3.
  • Add pasta, if it's too long to fit into the pot, then break it in half.
  • Add frozen shrimps/prawns, vegetable stock and seasoning. Using a spoon mix the ingredients to make sure that all the pasta is covered with liquid.
  • Close the lid, make sure that your IP is sealed and cook on "high pressure" for 4 minutes for al dente pasta, and for 5 minutes for softer pasta.
  • Do a quick release and serve.


  • If cooking in the Instant Pot, the shrimps must be frozen. As cooking fresh prawns for that long can result in rubbery shrimps.
  • If you only have fresh shrimps available, then cook the pasta for 2-3 minutes, then open the pressure cooker after doing a quick release. Add shrimps, then cook for 2 more minutes + QR.
