Shrimp and Sun Dried Tomato Sauté

25 Dec

Christmas Eve I wanted to have a seafood dish in addition to the typical turkey. I needed something quick and easy. One of my favorite octopus recipes is very similar to this. I changed few ingredients that I thought might go better with shrimp.

  • 1 lb raw shrimp
  • peeled1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked in water
  • salt to taste

Pat the shrimp dry. Pour 2 tbs of olive oil in a pan and heat on medium high.  Add garlic to pan and sauté, stirring often . Add the tomatoes and continue to sauté 1 minute before adding the shrimp. Cook until shrimp turn pink. Take of the heat and mix in the chopped basil. Serve immediately.
