This is such a wonderful and fast Meal to prepare. I tend to have all in my pantry or freezer at all times. Glad that we retired to a place where seafood is abundant. I thaw the shrimp under running water and make the fast sauce while they do that. :-0

How to Make Spicy Shrimp in 3 Ingredient Marinara Sauce!


  1. Season the shrimp with salt (Old Bay Seas. is good too)
  2. In a large skillet over med-high, heat 2 TBSP. olive oil. Cook the shrimp in 2 batches until pink/ golden. Give them room and don't over cook. 2-3 minutes per batch. Remove from skillet.
  3. Add the remaining oil, garlic and pepper flakes to pan and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add Marinara sauce and bring to a simmer. Return shrimp and heat through. 1-2 minutes. Serve over pasta or rice.
  4. 3 Ingredient Marinara Sauce!
    Makes 2 cups:
    1- 28 once can whole plum tomatoes
    2 T olive oil
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    Salt, pepper
  5. In a food processor or blender puree tomatoes until smooth. In a large skillet heat oil over med. heat, add garlic and cook until fragrant, stirring. Add tomatoes, 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt and fresh ground pepper (1/2 tsp.) Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 15 minute.
    NOTE: some tomatoes are quite acidic, so I taste and add a little sugar or a "glug" of red/sweet Vermouth while simmering.
    Also during the summer I go to my herb pots outside get 4-5 basil leaves and through them in towards the end. Serve over rice or pasta. My husband has to have fresh grated parmesan on top. :-)
