Garlic Shrimp in Creamy Tomato Sauce
Posted by Caveman Cooking on January 10, 2010
This a warm, savory dish that the whole family will devour!
3/4 Pound Raw Shrimp
1 15 oz. Can Tomato Sauce
3 Tbsp. Sour Cream
4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1 Tbsp. Fresh Chopped Basil
1 Large Tomato
1/2 tsp Red Crushed Pepper
Salt & Pepper to tatse
Rinse and drain shrimp. Remove tails, shells, and veins. Re-rinse and drain. Cover and refrigerate until ready for cooking.
Mince garlic, chop tomatoes and basil. Set aside.
In a sauce pan, heat 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil. When ready add 1 tablespoon each of garlic and basil. Saute for about one minute.
Reduce flame and add tomato sauce.
When warmed, whisk in sour cream. Add red crushed pepper. Salt & pepper to taste. Allow to simmer on very low flame.
HINT: I like to substitute garlic salt for the plain variety.
While sauce continues to warm, add remaining oil to a large skillet and saute remaining garlic about one minute. Add shrimp to pan and saute until just cooked.
Reduce flame to very low and stir in sauce. Reduce slightly.
Just before serving, gently fold tomatoes into sauce. Just long enough to warm the tomatoes.
I was going to show you a couple of pictures of the Cavekids enjoying this dish. But, nothing attests to their overwhelming approval of this recipe better than this ;):
