Category: Seafood

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Shrimp (in shells)
  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 1/4 c Salad oil
  • 1/2 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tb Parsley, chopped (optional)
  • 4 Fresh tomatos, skinned &
  • -chopped
  • 1 Pod garlic, chopped
  • 1 pn Saffron
  • 2 oz Dry white wine
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Peel tomatoses (place in boiling water for about 1 minute to loosen skin.
Set aside to cool.) Saute shrimp in oil for about 2 minutes on each side.
Remove shells. Season to taste ( I used lime juice and hot pepper sauce) .
Set aside. In same pan, saute onion until golden; add next 3 ingredients (I
skipped parsley as I didn't have any). Cook 10 minutes. Add white wine.
[NB: Original recipe called for 1 ounce. I added at least another ounce.
Can't be precise. I just poured it out of the glass I was dirinking out of)
. Saute a bit longer until sauce cooks down. Add shrimp and let simmer 3
minutes. Don't overcook the shrimp! Serve over rice.

My notes: The original recipe called for a "tube" of saffron. I don't know
how much that is, so I put in about a pinch. I suppose the dish could live
without it. It also called for vegetable oil only, but I used half
vegetable oil and half olive oil. I used nice large shrimp - and that made
a difference.
