Recipe Ingredients for Mediterranean Stewed Shrimp

12 oz shrimp, medium-large, cooked (If you use small shrimp you get more bites. I prefer a slightly larger shrimp that I can cut in ha
1/2 cup of minced red onion
1/2 large red bell pepper, diced
5 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
3 tsp oregano, minced, fresh (or 1 tsp of dried)
1 pinch of saffron threads (optional*)
2 cups of organic chicken broth
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced canned

Recipe Directions for Mediterranean Stewed Shrimp

  1. First thing to do is remove the tails from the shrimp. Just hold the main shrimp body and carefully yank off the tail. Set aside.

  2. In a medium sauté pan lightly spray with olive oil. Then add red onion and red pepper. Saute lightly til loosened. Then add organic chicken broth, cloves of garlic, oregano and saffron. (The garlic will become milder as it cooks but still lends a nice kick to the sauce)

  3. Cook to reduce slightly. Then add the shrimp and continue to cook until the shrimp are hot.

  4. Serve in soup bowls with breadsticks and a simple side salad.

  5. *If you don?t keep saffron in your cupboard, I?d say don?t buy it. It does lend a nice Mediterranean accent to the dish but it?s expensive and if you don?t use it fairly often it?s not worth buying for just this dish.
