If you do not like heat at all, you can reduce or omit the cherry peppers.  If you love heat, you can always add more!

Depending on the size of the shrimp, cooking times can vary. Cook until pink all the way through.


We usually just eat a bowl of this Tomato Basil shrimp recipe for dinner and pair it with a simple arugula salad and nice bottle of dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc. If you are not watching your carbs, you will love dipping some Italian bread in the sauce or serving over pasta. 

Food Prep:

This recipe is quick and easy to make for a healthy weeknight meal since the amount of food prep is minimal.
