Yum Yum Soup–easy Instant Pot shrimp soup with jasmine rice that’s finished off with a drizzling of yum yum sauce.
Yum Yum Soup
Are you a fan of yum yum sauce and shrimp? If so, you’ll love this soup! Skyler and I loved this shrimp soup with rice. It reminded me of a soup form of sushi. Greg is, sadly, allergic to shrimp so he did not get to partake but Skyler and I took this down in 2.2 seconds. I loved that there was almost a bite of shrimp in every bite of soup. The flavor was so good but not over the top. Try it! I think you’ll love this out of the box soup.
- Better than Bouillon chicken base
- Jasmine rice–you can also use sushi rice or regular long grain white rice
- Raw shrimp–I used frozen peeled, deveined, tail off shrimp
- Seasoned rice vinegar–I used Nakano brand
- Spinach–fresh or frozen
- Sesame seeds–I bought in bulk section at Winco
- Green onions
- Soy sauce–I used low sodium
- Sesame oil

Add water, bouillon and rice into Instant Pot.
Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the soup button to 3 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 5 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid.
Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. Stir in the shrimp.
Add in vinegar, spinach and sesame seeds. Cook until shrimp turns pink. Turn off Instant Pot.
Make the yum yum sauce by whisking together the mayo, soy sauce, sesame oil and sriracha.
Ladle soup into bowls and top with some diced green onion and a drizzle of yum yum sauce.
- Try serving with edamame or japanese dumplings.
- This recipe is gluten free and dairy free.
- I used my 6 quart Instant Pot*. You can also make this in a 3 or 8 quart pot.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container* in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Other recipes you can make with yum yum sauce are yum yum chicken and hibachi chicken.
