Shrimp ala Katrin


Shrimp ala Katrin
Some years ago, I had a very good friend make me this dish as a holiday gift.  I brought it home and Craig was SO in love with it, I had to get the recipe.  So after much badgering of my friend, Katrin, she relented and gave me the recipe.  I have made this again, and again, and we both absolutely love it.  Since making it, we have named it Shrimp ala Katrin, in honor of my friend. 

I have altered the recipe from time to time, depending on what I have and what we want…..more shrimp, less tomatoes, more onions/garlic, fresh thyme or oregano with the fresh basil.  But the basics are always the same.



Here is the recipe as I made it tonight: 

Shrimp ala Katrin

1 lb Shrimp (I used 26-30)
Olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4-5 cloves of garlic, pressed
4 large tomatoes, diced (and a few cherry tomatoes, because we had them)
20-30 leaves of fresh basil
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
Black pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste

Prep all of the vegetables, peel the shrimp, set aside.
Heat a circle or two of olive oil in a medium pan.
Add Shrimp, onions and garlic, sauté until onions are transparent and shrimp is pink.
Add tomatoes and cook until all has formed a sauce.  Add basil , stir and serve over rice.
