Recipe Notes

Here's how to clean shrimp: 

  • Rinse the shrimp under cold water.
  • If you bought shrimp with heads on, carefully remove the head (some recipes do call for shrimp with heads on).
  • Carefully remove the legs.
  • Remove the shell.
  • You can remove the tail now or leave it on. That is based on personal preference and the recipe you are making.
  • Carefully run a sharp knife just on the surface of the back and rinse out the vein. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and add the tomatoes. Cook, stirring, until they cook down and get thick, about 10 minutes.
