  1. Step 1

    Combine soy sauce, water, vinegar, sugar, grated ginger, minced garlic, sesame oil, and pepper in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Whisk to combine. Add raw shrimp, zucchini, and cauliflower. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 0 minutes (everything will cook during the time it takes to come to pressure). Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Step 2

    As soon as the Instant Pot® comes to pressure, release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.
  3. Step 3

    Check that the vegetables and shrimp are done to your liking; if necessary you can simmer them for 1 to 2 minutes by turning on the "Sauté" mode and bringing the sauce to a low boil, stirring occasionally.
  4. Step 4

    Stir together cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth if sauce is too thin. Select Sauté function and bring sauce to a simmer. Whisk cornstarch slurry into the sauce using a wooden spoon or spatula, stirring gently until the sauce has thickened to your liking.
  5. Step 5

    Taste and adjust the seasonings to your preference. Serve teriyaki shrimp over hot cooked rice with a sprinkling of sesame seeds if desired.
