Happy Shrimp

¼ cup butter

1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic

1 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp

¼ cup chopped green onions

¼ cup dry white wine

⅓ 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

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Stir the shrimp back into the sauce, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat through and serve over angel hair pasta or with crusty bread.
