15-20 shrimp, peeled, deveined, no tail (I used 31-40 shrimp per pound)⁠

2-3 cloves garlic, minced ⁠

1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)⁠

1 tsp curry powder ⁠

3-4 sprigs of fresh thyme⁠

½ cup white wine ⁠

3-4 tbsp butter, but follow your heart on this one⁠

½ shallot or ¼ onion, finely diced.⁠

1 tomato, diced, seeds removed. ⁠

Cilantro or chives, chopped (optional)⁠

Olive oil ⁠

Kosher Salt ⁠

Freshly ground black pepper (if not using chilli pepper flakes) ⁠


1️⃣ Make sure shrimp is clean and deveined. Pat dry using a paper towel. In a medium bowl, mix shrimp with garlic, red pepper flakes (or black pepper), curry powder, salt and about a tbsp of olive oil. Mix well. ⁠

2️⃣ In a pan or skillet, heat up about a tbsp of olive oil and sear the shrimp for about 30 seconds per side. Put shrimp on the side. ⁠

3️⃣ Using the same pan, add shallots/onions and thyme, sweat shallots for a minute or so and deglaze with white wine. Let simmer for one minute and add butter. Keep stirring while butter melts. Add diced tomato and chopped cilantro/chives, stir for a few seconds, and then add the shrimp back in the pan with all those juices. Mix well and season to taste. Serve with warm bread and ENJOY!⁠
