  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the bell pepper and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add the shrimp and cook until opaque, about 2 minutes on each side. Stir in the tomato sauce, parsley, and red pepper flakes, and cook until tomato sauce is warmed through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

This was excellent. I prepared the dish exactly as written and served it with Mofongo (from this site, same author of this recipe). If you like garlic, you will love this. Will definitely prepare this lovely, garlicky dish again. Read More

This is a very good recipie! I tweaked it a little because my wife does not like tomato sauce or spicy things. So in place of the sauce I just got a package of Lawrys Sundried tomato and garlic sauce and Mixed that in. She also does not like spicy as well so I cut out the peppers and put in paprika in place. But followed the rest of the recipie to a T. I Put it all on a bed of pasta (would also go well with rice) and It came out with a VERY light Mediterranean taste. Definately season with salt and black pepper at the end but it came out SO Flavorful! My wife said it was restraunt quality. I am rating this a 5 because this is a very EASY recipie with good results at the end. Read More

Yum! I made this for my Puerto Rican girlfriend and she 100% approved! Just a few notes. First tomato sauce is not the same thing as you'd put on spaghetti. It's actually more of a purée. Look for Goya tomato sauce in little cans. Also I'm assuming "fresh" shrimp means uncooked. I couldn't find any uncooked shrimp on sale so I added cooked shrimp but not until the final 5 minutes when the tomato sauce went in. Any earlier than that and the shrimp will get mushy. I served over white rice and if you want the full experience make some plantain slices fried in olive oil as the side. There was a decent amount of leftovers even after 2 large plates each. Read More

Delicioso! I was nervous that the garlic would overpower everything else but once it was done I thought it tasted fantastic. I upped the red pepper flakes a bit because my fiance loves spicy food otherwise followed the recipe as written. I'm adding this to my keeper file gracias latinacook! Read More

very tasty, I used red bell instead of green and fresh parsley (because that's what I had) and reduced the butter, as well as added a jalapeno. Will make this again. Read More
