Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion, and sauté for about 5 minutes until soft. Add the garlic, and cook for a few seconds, then add the shrimp and cook over high heat just until the shrimp begin to turn pink.
  2. Add the sherry, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring, until the smell of alcohol disappears, then add the tomatoes and olives. Cook for 2 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes start to break down. Season well with salt and pepper, and stir in the basil. Serve with fresh crusty bread.
Tips:
  • If you prefer, use a splash of white wine instead of the sherry.
