Variations for this recipe
The roasted tomatoes, garlic, and onion add wonderful flavor to this recipe. But there are a few ways you could add even more taste and texture if you like!
First, these shrimp would be wonderful with some added heat. If you enjoy spice, feel free to include some minced jalapeños or some red pepper flakes. Either option would be so tasty.
You could also throw in more vegetables. I think I’m going to try adding some diced bell peppers next time for even more crunch.
This recipe is for four servings of roasted shrimp with garlic and tomato. If you find yourself with leftovers, you can store them covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Be sure to reheat this dish gently so you don’t overcook the shrimp. On the other hand, shrimp are delicious cold, so you could enjoy it straight out of the refrigerator!
