Spicy Latin-Inspired Shrimp in Tomato Sauce step by step

  1. In a large pan (at least 12") preheat the oil and butter on medium heat until all the butter is melted..
  2. Add onions, peppers, garlic, and cilantro, and sweat until onions are translucent..
  3. Stir in Goya packet and cayenne..
  4. Add tomato sauce, stock or wine, fresh lemon juice, and salt, stir to combine thoroughly, and bring to a gentle boil for a minute..
  5. Gently fold in shrimp and cook, covered, just until all shrimp are cooked through. If you need a little more salt, you can add it at this point. You'll know the shrimp are cooked through when they all *just* turn opaque, but don't cook too much longer after that or you'll lose that plump, juicy texture..
  6. Garnish with a little bit of chopped fresh cilantro and enjoy! :).
