Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 5 cloves of garlic pressed
  • 1 Lb Mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion finely diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream not low fat
  • 1 Lb large shrimp peeled and deveined (I left the tail on for effect)
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a large heavy bottom skillet or a WOK, combine your diced tomatoes and pressed garlic with 3 Tbsp olive oil and simmer uncovered over medium heat until tomatoes are soft and release their juices (10-12 min). Remove your tomatoes and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet over med/high heat, caramelize your diced onions and sliced mushrooms then add the tomato mixture back into the same pan.
  3. Add 1 tsp salt, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 Tbsp chili sauce. Stir to combine. Add in 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and stir to combine.
  4. Bring your sauce to a simmer over med/high heat and add in the shrimp. Turn the shrimp a couple times in the sauce while cooking and simmer until shrimp is cooked through. Don't overcook or your shrimp will turn rubbery.
  5. Let the sauce cool down a little bit (it will thicken a little as it cools) then serve over your favorite plain rice, pasta or mashed potatoes.
