Easy Shrimp Marinara
  • 2 lbs frozen peeled & deveined large shrimp, defrosted and pat dry
  • 2- 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1 onion, small dice
  • 8 garlic cloves, sliced
  • fresh basil
  • olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  1. In a large pot, over low heat, add a few tablespoons of olive oil, the onion and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Sauté until just softened. If you are going for the spicy version, go ahead and add in the crushed red pepper flakes in now.
  3. Add the crushed tomatoes into the pot as well as a couple handfuls of torn basil leaves.
  4. Simmer for 3 hours. Taste for salt and pepper.
  5. Right before you are ready to serve go ahead and add in the shrimp. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or just until the shrimp begin to curl and are a nice opaque white.
  6. I served the shrimp over whole grain linguini, finished with some fresh cracked pepper and a drizzle of basil olive oil.
