How to Make It

Step 1    

In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the shrimp shells and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until pink, 3 minutes. Add the 1 chopped onion and cook until softened, 3 minutes. Add 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderately low heat until the stock is reduced to 2 cups, 40 minutes. Strain the shrimp stock through a fine sieve.

Step 2    

Season the shrimp lightly with salt and pepper. In a very large, deep skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until shimmering. Add half of the shrimp and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining shrimp.

Step 3    

In the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the green pepper, garlic and the 2 cups of diced onion and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened, 8 minutes. Add the wine and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the shrimp stock, tomato sauce, Worcestershire and cayenne and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat, stirring often, until the sauce has reduced by half, 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

Add the shrimp to the sauce and simmer over moderately low heat until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve over steamed rice.

Suggested Pairing

Zesty Sauvignon Blanc goes well with the brightness of tomatoes.
