Shrimp cooked to perfection in a garlic and olive oil sauce is prime eating!

And this healthy recipe is a nod to one of our favorite Spanish shrimp recipes of all time: Gambas al Ajillo.

Going to a tapas restaurant and not ordering that dish is absolutely unthinkable. Therefore, we decided to tweak that iconic garlic shrimp recipe and make it our own.

Now, in an effort to keep the spice level in check, we opted to jettison the normal dry crushed red pepper in favor of a more mellow source of heat: black pepper.

And to up the play between savory and tart, we’re going for the sun-kissed burst that only fresh lemon juice can bring.

That delicious interplay of ingredients is only heightened by the flavor forward herbs! Thyme, oregano and green onion are added to the rice to bring a garden-freshness to the finished dish.

Yep – this garlic shrimp with herbed rice is a flavor bomb. And you’re going to love how easy it is to make in your rice cooker.


From this bacon and potato frittata to this herbed pomegranate quinoa salad, your Tiger rice cooker is always up to the challenge.

Hey, whipping up food you might not always associate with a rice cooker is kind of our thing!

Much of that is due to Tiger’s exclusive tacook cooking plate – which allows you to cook rice and a composed dish at the same time.

For this garlicky shrimp and rice recipe, you’ll use the Synchro-Cooking setting. Once you press the Start key, you’re finished.

Why not kick your feet up with a glass of wine?

You deserve it, chef!
