Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bay leaf and cook for 1 minute. Add onion, jalapenos and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in shrimp, cover and cook until pink and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and olives. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, replace cover and cook until the tomatoes are almost broken down, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove the bay leaf. Serve with lime wedges.

Footnotes

  • Recipe Tips & Notes:
  • Shopping Tip: Shrimp is usually sold by the number needed to make one pound. For example, “21-25 count” means there will be 21 to 25 shrimp in a pound. Size names, such as “large” or “extra large,” are not standardized, so to be sure you're getting the size you want, order by the count (or number) per pound. Both wild-caught and farm-raised shrimp can damage the surrounding ecosystems when not managed properly. Fortunately, it is possible to buy shrimp that have been raised or caught with sound environmental practices. Look for fresh or frozen shrimp certified by an independent agency, such as Wild American Shrimp or Marine Stewardship Council. If you can't find certified shrimp, choose wild-caught shrimp from North America--it's more likely to be sustainably caught.

Good meal. I didn't have green olive, so I used black olives. Green would have been better. I too used olive oil. Finally, I added a little white wine before adding the tomatoes and olives a...

I followed the recipe exactly as specified, but used grape seed oil instead of canola. What a delicious meal we had! The family raved about the kick from the jalapeño! I will make this again ...

the only change i made was to use olive oil insted of canola, I will defiantly make again!

First rate and excellent with angel hair pasta

We made it as is and put it over angel hair pasta. It was delightful and very low calorie.

excellent overall. I thought it needed salt.

I was not sure about the green olives, so used half. They were very good wish I put all of them in. Also made a batch using chicken so those who did not like shrimp. They liked it too"

This dish was a little bland for my taste. However, I will make it again and try a couple of changes I thought of. I think adding some lemon juice while cooking and using Kalamata olives instead...

This is a keeper!
