Skillet Shrimp and Tomatoes

"Quick recipe I found in the paper which was adapted from Everyday Food magazine. Sounds yummy. Test kitchen tip: Always heat cooking oil in the pan before adding other ingrdients, and swirl pan to coat bottom evenly. The oil is hot enough it sizzles when water is sprinkled in or when food is added (to prevent splattering, tip pan away from you to allow oil to pool, and add food to side of pan close to you). Serve over pasta, rice or spinach."

  1. This was delicious, light, summery and flavorful. I used 2 large regular garden tomatoes, skin removed and coarsely chopped, instead of plum tomatoes. I couldn't get a great photo no matter how I tried, darn it. I served the shrimp with corn on the cob, fresh green beans, crispy potatoes and whole wheat rolls for soaking up the tomato garlic sauce. Wonderful dinner for our Father's Day. Thanks for posting this winner!


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
