Friday Food: Peloponnesian Shrimp

Personally I'm a huge fan of shrimp so anytime I can find a recipe to spice it up and enjoy I'm happy to share.  This one comes from the Paleo Diet for Athletes (great read by the way) so it is all good on the paleo front and at the same time a great source of protein and fat.  Simple, relatively quick and extremely tasty, enjoy.

            1 tsp garlic, finely chopped
            2 tbsp olive oil

            2 cups tomatoes, diced
            ½ cup dry white wine
            ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
            1 tsp dried oregano
            Black pepper
            1 ½ pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
            1/8 tsp ground red pepper

Game Plan:

-Briefly cook the garlic in 1 tbsp of the oil, stirring frequently.  
-Add the tomatoes and cook for about a minute.  
-Add the wine, basil, oregano, and black pepper to taste.  
-Cook over moderate heat for 8 to 10 minutes.  
-Heat the remaining 1 tbsp of oil in a large skillet and add the shrimp.  
-Cook rapidly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink.  
-Dust with the red pepper.  
-Pour the tomato sauce over the shrimp.  
-Serves 4.
