• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• half of a medium onion diced finely (about 1/2 cup)
• half of a green bell pepper diced finely (about 1/2 cup)
• half red pepper finely diced (about 1/2 cup)
• half yellow pepper finely diced (or orange)
• 4 large garlic cloves – minced
• 8 ounce can of tomato sauce
• 1/2 cup water
• 1/2 cup white wine
• 1/3 cup green Spanish olives (plus a tablespoon of the brine)
• 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 pinch black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
• 1 lb medium sized shrimp (peeled, deveined, and tail-off)

Method of Preparation:

  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add in the olive oil, onions, and green peppers. Sauté until the onions and peppers soften.
  • Add in a little bit of the tomato sauce and then add the garlic so the garlic won’t burn. Cook down for a few minutes.
  • Add in the remaining tomato sauce, water, white wine, olives, oregano, salt, pepper, and cumin. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes, uncovered.
  • Then add in the shrimp and simmer, covered for 10 minutes until the shrimp becomes opaque.
  • Serve immediately over white rice.
