Hitachi Rice Cooker Bar-B-Que Shrimp


Although Hitachi makes many appliances, almost every Cajun who bought a rice cooker called it by its manufacturer name – a Hitachi!

Although not BBQ’ed these shrimp have a buttery smoky flavor


  • 2 - 3 pounds shrimp (depending on how many will fit into your insert dish)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp parsley, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 tsp . liquid smoke
  • salt and black pepper to taste


Step 1

Wash the shrimp well and put in the dish.

Step 2

Combine all the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and over a low heat simmer for 10 minutes. Pour over the shrimp.

Step 3

When cool, mix well, coating the shrimp and refrigerate for 2 or 3 hours, turning several times.

Step 4

Place 1/2 cup of water in your steamer, insert the steamer plate and place the insert dish therein. Cover and switch on.

Step 5

When the bell rings, the shrimp are ready.

When serving, use bread to "sop" up the sauce that will develop. Speaking of bread—stale bread or rolls can be brought back to crisp freshness by placing in the steamer (on top of the steamer plate or trivet) and using 1/4 cup of water.
