Mexican Shrimp

Here's to the Mediterranean side of the a Mexican kitchen. Fresh, simple and once again, a healthy Shrimp Dish.

Shrimp is definitely one of my favorite sources of protein. Take a look at this yummy recipe for a flavorful and spicy meal.

What you will need - Olive oil / Yellow Onion / Garlic / Jalapeños / Tomatoes / Capers / Olives 2 Bay Leaves / Oregano / Shrimp / Salt / Cilantro

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté onions, garlic and jalapeños until onions are translucent ( about 6 minutes) 

 Stir in tomatoes, capers, olives, bay leaves and oregano. Simmer until tomatoes reduce by half,  about 10 minutes. 

Add shrimp and cook until it just curls and turns opaque, 2-4 minutes. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve over cooked white rice or black beans.

You can also replace your shrimp with chicken or fish...Next time, instead of rice I believe I'll try the black beans. I enjoy cooking for my family, I believe the love, happiness and positive energy  you put into making your meals matters. Cherish the moments you have together, those sweet faces grow up so fast...          Cooking is Love made visible...
