Comments: You could also add calamari rings, bay scallops, mussels, and/or fish chunks if you wished and it would only add to this dish's superb flavor. In any case, it's not pop-your-eyeballs-out hot but you can supplement the heat from the cooking oil by adding a little Tabasco as directed. This is a shrimp dish that will be quickly devoured by a small crowd as I discovered when I first served it as one of multiple appetizers at a family gathering ? it was the first to disappear. As a meal, you can serve this over either cooked Basmati rice or egg noodles.

Recipe Ingredients for Tomato-Shrimp Scampi Diablo

15 oz stewed tomatoes (canned, chopped, with juice)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbs cooking oil
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
1 1/2 tbs honey (or, good sorghum molasses, not blackstrap)
1 tbs butter
1/4 cup salsa verde (or regular salsa)
1 shot vermouth (or, white table wine)
1 tsp Tabasco sauce (optional)
5/16 lb halibut
1/2 lb raw shrimp, medium-sized, peeled, de-veined, de-tailed

Recipe Directions for Tomato-Shrimp Scampi Diablo

  1. In a large no-stick skillet over medium heat, pour in the cooking oil and the butter.

  2. When the oil has heated some, drop in the onion, red pepper flakes and minced garlic and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onion has tenderized, (about 6-8 minutes).

  3. Next add the stewed tomatoes with the juice and the salsa verde. Allow this blend to reduce for about 5 minutes, uncovered, stirring frequently.

  4. Add the honey, the vermouth, the raw shrimp, and the Tabasco (if using) and sautee for 6 more minutes, stirring constantly. (If adding mussels and/or fish chunks, cook for an additional 3 minutes and until all mussels have opened -- discard any mussels which fail to open after a few minutes).

  5. NOTE: If adding additional seafood, you may wish to add some extra liquid during the final sauté. I recommend using canned chicken broth which I have used with great success in this dish.

  6. You can serve this dish (on small plates) as an appetizer -- or, as a meal, you can serve it over either cooked rice or egg noodles.
