12-Minute Pesto Shrimp

1 tbsp olive oil

1 lb large shrimp peeled and deveined

½ cup cherry tomatoes

Pinch salt

¼ cup basil pesto sauce

In a large (12-inch) nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp and the tomatoes with a pinch of salt.

Cook, stirring often, until the shrimp are almost cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir in the pesto sauce and cook, stirring, until the shrimp are fully cooked and opaque, about one more minute.

Divide the shrimp and tomatoes between two plates. Use a rubber spatula to scrape any remaining sauce from the pan and pour it on top of the shrimp. Serve immediately.
