Recipe For Happy Shrimp


1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste


Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shrimp, garlic, and green onions. Cook and stir until the shrimp are pink on the outside, and no longer translucent in the center, about 5 minutes. Set the shrimp aside, and pour in the wine, cream, tomatoes, basil, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the sauce will coat the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes.

Stir the shrimp back into the sauce, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat through and serve.
