This shrimp and mushroom sauce is luscious, juicy and just succulent. It's great over mashed potatoes, rice or pasta, making it an all-around great dish! I also discovered that it reheats wonderfully so you can make it a day ahead and warm it up stove-top before serving.
- 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
