Portuguese Shrimps
Servings: A Crowd

Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hours
Cost: Moderate
ManoMeter - Difficulty: Easy



• 1lb of de-veined shrimp. Keep the shell together
• 1 Cup of white rice
• 796 mL (1 can) crushed tomatoes
• 1 large onion
• 1.5 bottle of beer
• 29mL (2 tbsp) of heated pimento
• 59mL (4 tbsp) of extra virgin olive oil


Place extra virgin olive oil into a deep pot with 1 onion, chopped into small pieces and sautes for 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes, shrimp, beer, pimento sauce, salt and pepper to taste, and let simmer on low for 1 hour.

Tip: While waiting, sit back and have a sip of that unused beer.

After one hour the tomatoes should be soft, this means it is ready. Serve in a bowl as shrimp soup or remove the shrimp and serve on a platter with pieces of sliced baguette. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley

Tip: Allowing this dish to settle in the refrigerator and than reheated the next day will make the shrimp juicier and add additional flavour to the broth.
