Tiger Shrimp With Pasta

Recipe by Thorsten
READY IN: 30mins




  • Cook spaghetti or ribbon pasta 'al dente' according to package directions. Drain, but not rinse.
  • Meanwhile heat olive in a small pot to medium high heat. Add tiger shrimps and cook on each side for about 1 minute. Take shrimps out, drain and peel.
  • Cook onions and the whole peeled garlic in the same oil for about 1 minute until onions are tender. Add anchovy filets and crush them. Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional minute.
  • Add tomatoes and thyme. Do not cook. Tomatoes should only be heated through. Season with a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Add peeled tiger shrimps and heat through for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove garlic clove and add drained noodles or pasta. Mix well, cover and let rest for 2 minutes. Serve.
  • NOTE: I use garlic only to flavor the tomato sauce. But if you like you can mince 1/2 of the garlic clove and leave it in the sauce.
  • NOTE: If you like the sweet taste of tomatoes you can use up to 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to bring it up even more.
  • NOTE: If you like more sauce add 1-2 tablespoons of the pasta cooking water.
