12-Minute Pesto Shrimp
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb large shrimp peeled and deveined
½ cup cherry tomatoes
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.
