  6. Now, add the shrimp. Cook for 1–2 minutes, then add the diced tomatoes, broth, white wine, and lemon juice.
  7. Cook for a few more minutes, or until the shrimp is brilliant orange.

NOTES:

  • Shrimp cook quickly, so keep your eyes on the skillet.
  • Shrimp are ready when their color shifts from grey to orange, with vivid red tails.
  • When one side begins to turn pink, you know you’re almost there.
  • Use your wooden spoon to quickly toss the shrimp so that it turns color on the opposite side.
  • Remember that your skillet is still hot, even if you have switched off the heat.
  • Shrimp will continue to cook for a little longer.
  • Serve with plain orzo, couscous, or a favorite grain.
