Stir-Fry Shrimp With Tomatoes Recipe

We love seafood and in particular, we love shrimp. We love it prepared a variety of different ways but this easy recipe for a shrimp stir fry is one of our favorites to make. We make it a lot in the summertime when I try to avoid using our oven.

Shrimp with Tomatoes Stir-Fry Recipe

2 tbsp. corn oil
1 large onion
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or minced
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
14 oz. can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp. sun-dried tomato paste
1 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1 lb. peeled shrimp
salt & pepper to taste

Heat the corn oil in a large preheated wok. Finely chop the onion and add onion and garlic to the wok and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in the cumin seeds and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the sugar, chopped tomatoes and tomato paste to the wok. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat and leave the sauce to simmer for 10 minutes. Add the basil, shrimp and salt & pepper to taste to the mixture in the wok. Increase the heat and cook for another 3 minutes or until the shrimp is completely cooked through.
