Hi.

Welcome to this venture of mine, where I hope to share my passions of healthy cooking, fitness, and travel with the world, and hopefully inspire others to live a bit healthier in their own lives.

Shrimp With Herby White Beans and Tomatoes

Shrimp With Herby White Beans and Tomatoes

I've been finding so many recipes with white beans that I wanted to try and this one only took 20 minutes. See below for the recipe (but the original epicurious link is at the bottom of this post):

YIELD: Serves 2

ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

·        3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

·        1 medium shallot, thinly sliced

·        1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes

·        1/2 teaspoon (or more) kosher salt, divided

·        1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

·        1 (15-ounce) can white beans, rinsed, drained

·        1/4 cup high-quality pesto, plus more for serving

·        8 ounces shrimp, peeled, deveined (about 16 medium)

PREPARATION

1.     Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium; cook shallot until just softened and golden, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes with their juices, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and 1/4 cup water. Increase heat to high, bring to a boil, and cook until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add beans and 1/4 cup Roasted Garlic Herb Sauce, and cook, stirring, until warmed through, 1–2 minutes. Taste and adjust salt if needed, then divide bean mixture between 2 large, shallow bowls.

2.     Wipe out skillet. Heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in skillet over medium-high. Add shrimp and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Cook, stirring often, until shrimp is cooked through and starting to take on a little color on both sides, about 3 minutes. Divide shrimp between bowls with beans; drizzle with additional sauce. Serve with toast alongside.
