Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Tomatoes Sauté - A quick and easy way to make the most delicious accompaniment to rice, orzo, and pasta!

Hello, friends! Happy Sunday! Hope you had a chance to sleep in, eat a stack of Scottish Pancakes, and downed a few Mimosas.   That’d be one dang amazing Sunday morning, eh? 

In real life talk, I have been totally out of it for the last week, as I have been trying to help my dad get better post open heart surgery. I don’t really go into sharing too much of real life on here because this is our happy place, right?! And I love happiness! 😀 BUT, right now, I do need all your prayers, thoughts and your well-wishes, please!
THANK YOU! 

P.S. He is a vegetarian, plays soccer for 60-minutes twice a week, never sits down, and is only 61… Doc says, blame it on genetics. Ugh.  Sometimes, the rules do not apply, you know?

Anywho! Let’s find happy. How about this shrimp? A flavor bomb explosion that isn’t dessert!

The only reason I was compelled to make this in the first place was because it was time to move on from the Garlic Butter Shrimp and Rice after making it for every meal for the last 365 days, and this seemed like a logical next step to, um, more delicious shrimp that you can put over, um, more rice.

    Just curious as to why the Sodium content is so high? Looks Delicious…but on a 1500 or preferably less sodium diet this recipe seems unattainable 😮

      Hi! This is an old recipe on my site, using an old calculator that was counting 1 pound as 1 serving. 😳 Sorry about that! 😃 Also, just FYI, shrimp are high in sodium. The environment they live in is salty, but also fresh caught shrimp are dunked into a salty brine as soon as they are caught. Then, store bought shrimp are also frozen in a salt solution, which adds even more salt. 😫
