green bell pepper, sliced

crushed red pepper flakes

YUMM YUMMM YUMMM The only thing I did differently is that instead of the tomato sauce I used 1/4 cup of red cooking wine and 2 tbsp tomato paste (italian style from a tube)
I did enjoy this recipe for the most part, less time I will likely use less tomato sauce.
This was excellent. I prepared the dish exactly as written and served it with Mofongo (from this site, same author of this recipe). If you like garlic, you will love this. Will definitely prepare this lovely, garlicky dish again.
This is a very good recipie! I tweaked it a little because my wife does not like tomato sauce, or spicy things. So in place of the sauce I just got a package of Lawrys Sundried tomato and garlic sauce, and Mixed that in. She also does not like spicy as well, so I cut out the peppers and put in paprika in place. But followed the rest of the recipie to a T. I Put it all on a bed of pasta,(would also go well with rice) and It came out with a VERY light Mediterranean taste. Definately season with salt and black pepper at the end, but it came out SO Flavorful! My wife said it was restraunt quality. I am rating this a 5 because this is a very EASY recipie with good results at the end.
Man- these were SO good! Very flavorful and definitely restaurant quality. I didn't have to substute a thing. I'll be making these again very soon as everyone raved about these! Will have to make some white rice next time, for sure
Yum! I made this for my Puerto Rican girlfriend and she 100% approved! Just a few notes. First, tomato sauce is not the same thing as you'd put on spaghetti. It's actually more of a purée. Look for Goya tomato sauce in little cans. Also, I'm assuming "fresh" shrimp means uncooked. I couldn't find any uncooked shrimp on sale, so I added cooked shrimp, but not until the final 5 minutes when the tomato sauce went in. Any earlier than that and the shrimp will get mushy.
I served over white rice, and if you want the full experience, make some plantain slices fried in olive oil as the side. There was a decent amount of leftovers even after 2 large plates each.
My favorite Shrimp dish, makes you want to lick your fingers. Love the flavor
Delicioso! I was nervous that the garlic would overpower everything else, but once it was done I thought it tasted fantastic. I upped the red pepper flakes a bit because my fiance loves spicy food, otherwise followed the recipe as written. I'm adding this to my keeper file, gracias latinacook!
