You will find many easy shrimp recipes on this website. This particular one is super easy and very healthy. It can be made quickly as well.
My biggest recommendation when cooking shrimp is that you make sure you use peeled, deveined shrimp. You do not want to leave the black vein that runs on the shrimp’s back. It is gritty and tastes bad. It is also the shrimp’s intestine.
This meal is under 300 calories so it is not only tasty it is great for watching your figure.
Here is what you need for this easy and healthy shrimp recipes:
1 pound peeled and de-veined shrimp
1 medium white onion
2 TBS olive oil
4 garlic cloves – finely chopped
1 TBS oregano
1 -14 oz. can of diced tomatoes with their juice
½ tsp. fennel seeds
28 oz. tomato sauce
¼ cup water
½ cup chopped basil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. sugar
Heat the olive oil and add the onion. Cook it until it is translucent and softened – about 7 to 8 minutes. Add the oregano and diced tomatoes and juice. Let the tomatoes cook for a few minutes. Add the fennel seeds and the tomato sauce and water. Add the salt, pepper and sugar. Mix well and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add the shrimp and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes – until shrimp is opaque and pink. Do not overcook because the shrimp will become rubbery. Turn off the heat and add the basil. Mix in and serve with polenta, rice or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
