Spicy Shrimp Stew

Plump, meaty shrimps, fresh jalapeño peppers, tomatoes and aromatics combine to make a blissful spicy shrimp stew that comes into its own in the cooler months, particularly when accompanied by toasted, garlic brushed bread for soaking up the sauce. While this recipe is ever so easy, do take care not to overcook the shrimps.
