• salt
• freshly ground black pepper
• olive oil
• medium onion, chopped
• red or yellow bell pepper, roasted, peeled and chopped
• cloves garlic, minced
• canned tomatoes, diced with juice

Recipe Preparation

  1. Combine shrimp shells and tails with water, salt and pepper in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to simmer. Skim foam as it rises from the broth.
  2. After 15 minutes, strain out and discard the shells and tails, reserving broth.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the bell pepper and garlic. Sauté for a minute. Mix in the diced tomatoes with their juices and saffron.
