Succulent pieces of shrimp are smothered in a sweet and savory tomato-based sauce made with garlic, fresh herbs and onion. Enjoy this dish served over rice of freshly cooked pasta.


  • 1-1/2 pounds shrimp, de-veined and rinsed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 14 ounce can Italian tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley, coriander, dill and chives)
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Place the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the shrimp and sauté until opaque. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add the onions to the hot pan, sauté for 5 minutes over medium heat, and then add the garlic, tomatoes, half of the herbs and the bay leaf; bring the mixture to a simmer and then cook for 5 minutes. Return the shrimp to the pan, cover and cook over medium-low heat for an additional 4 minutes.
  3. Add a few pinches of salt and pepper to the mixture and then sprinkle with the remaining herbs; serve immediately.
