Recipe Ingredients for Shrimp with Basil and Fresh Tomatoes

12 ounces shrimp, peeled
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, sliced in ribbons
1 tablespoon capers, drained and rinsed (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces spaghetti (or other pasta), cooked and drained
1/4 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (optional)

Recipe Directions for Shrimp with Basil and Fresh Tomatoes

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Set aside.

  2. Pour olive oil into a large skillet. (Add more oil as necessary during cooking.) Preheat over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in hot oil for 2 minutes or until onions are crisp-tender. Remove onion mixture from the pan.

  3. Add shrimp to the hot pan. Stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until shrimp turn opaque. Remove from pan.

  4. Return onion mixture to the pan over medium-low heat. Add tomatoes, basil, capers (if desired), salt, and pepper. Stir all ingredients together. Add the cooked shrimp. Cook and stir for 1 minute more or until heated through. Serve immediately over hot cooked spaghetti or other pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
