Roasted Tomato Shrimp

This is one dish I make often, I always seem to have shrimp either in my freezer or fresh, sometimes I toss in spaghetti, or if we’re not in a spaghetti mood I might make some couscous on the side to serve with it, but one of our favorite ways to eat this is by putting the whole pan right in the middle of the table surrounded by other little small bites and appetizers.

What you have here is the intensely concentrated flavor of tomatoes that have been roasted with shaved garlic, olive oil and thyme. The tomato’s of choice are either grape or the Campari variety on the vine, or a mixture of both.

Roasting your tomatoes ahead of time can place this dish on your table in less than 15 minutes.

For a pound of shrimp coat your pan with a generous drizzle of olive oil, add to your pan 4 cloves of shaved garlic, saute til golden, add shrimp and a good splash of white wine. When the shrimp turns pink and is almost cooked through add in your roasted tomatoes and toss. Garnish with chopped parsley and fresh basil.

Buon Appetito!

  1. man that looks good! Can I ask about the accompaniments? Looks like mixed olives and is it sundried toms or chilli in the glass?, bread, wine, mozzarella and grilled capsicum in one dish and then some hard cheese? All looks delicious!!

  2. A simple, but delicious dish as usual, and beautiful photography to boot.

  3. With or without pasta, those shrimp look so succulent and delicious! Perfect for those warmer spring evenings!

  4. I am a freezer shrimp girl too.
    I always have 2 bags waiting for me when I get home! (sounds interesting!).

  5. Campari tomatoers are a welcome reminder of summer flavours this time of year. They would add so much robust flavour to this dish.

  6. healthy, satisfying, and beautiful. thanks.

  7. That photo is beautiful and your are showing a perfect standby, day in and out!

  8. GORGEOUS! We had a shrimp & tomatoe pasta over the weekend with a very similar profile. Thinking nextime we’ll ditch the pasta and go with this version. Yum!

  9. My mouth is so watering, Marie. Reminds me a little of shrimp saganaki. I love this version and will definitely put it in the rotation. Thanks!

  10. Now I have to buy some shrimp! This dish looks and sounds delicious! Thanks!

  11. Shrimp is my quick “go to” ingredient. I love yours with the roasted tomatoes. What a perfect meal with your lovely side appetizers! The presentation is just gorgeous!

  12. I think is one of your prettiest pics! And rather deceiving, because it looks so sophisticated, but can be whipped up in no time. I’m putting this one in my recipe file. I’m looking for things that come together quickly for summertime.

  13. Absolutely delicious!

  23. WOW! I love quick diners like this. Keep posting simple dishes liek this one and i will be your biggest stalker…ahem…fan!

  24. I absolutly love roasting tomatoes, especially small grape/cherry ones. I love the way they just pop when you bite into them. This dish, with couscous on the side, sounds so lovely… especially if it would start acting a bit more like warm spring out there!
