  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 vine-ripe tomatoes, seeded

  • 1 tablespoon butter, or to taste

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • olive oil

  • ½ white onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 plum tomatoes, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons dried basil

  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano


  1. Place shrimp in a resealable container or zip-top bag. Add red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and salt; toss together. Seal and let marinate for 1 hour.

  2. Pulse vine tomatoes in a blender until smooth.

  3. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Add marinated shrimp and increase heat to medium. Cook and stir until slightly browned on the outsides but not cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove shrimp and set aside.

  4. Add a splash of white wine to the frying pan and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom using a wooden spoon. Pour in olive oil. Add onion to the hot oil and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Pour in remaining wine and cook until reduced by half, 6 to 8 minutes.

  5. Add the pureed tomatoes, plum tomatoes, basil, parsley, and oregano to the sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring frequently, until flavors combine, about 25 minutes. Toss shrimp back into the pan and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes more.
