Creamy Sundried Tomato Shrimp – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sundried tomatoes with creamy mascarpone cheese and a touch of garlic create a beautiful sauce for shrimp.  This Creamy Sundried Tomato Shrimp recipe is super simple and made in a skillet on the stove top in minutes, and can be enjoyed tossed with pasta, over rice, or enjoyed straight from the pan.

I used julienned sundried tomatoes in oil for simplicities sake and added garlic cloves and some dried seasonings from the pantry before pulverizing in a food processor.  The glowing sundried tomato mix is not quite a pesto, because they’re no nuts in it, however its lovely texture and sweet flavors compliment shrimp beautifully for a quick and tasty meal.

I used frozen shrimp in the recipe, no need to defrost and in a few minutes time they come to life and poach with ease.  The mascarpone cheese adds earthiness and plays with the tomatoes until they become slightly creamy — another flavorful note that will impress your palate.  I served this meal straight from the skillet with rustic bread.
