ShrimpGreat cooking doesn’t always demand complex techniques. Incredibly satisfying meals can be made from simple ingredients that are treated with respect. Here, I combine fish stock, tomatoes and shrimp for a hearty and soulful meal.

Let’s get cooking!

Peel and devein 1lb of shrimp.

Hand crush 32oz of whole tomatoes.

Simmer over medium heat for an hour.

Add the shrimp.

Cook for an additional 10 minutes.
