Spicy Shrimp Pomodoro

This dish is absolutely delicious. It only has three main ingredients. Pomodoro sauce, pork broth and shrimp (fresh or frozen)!

Pomodoro and Marinara are both tomato sauce.

They are very similar except that marinara has chunkier tomatoes and has a thinner or runny consistency, when I want pomodoro sauce, I just put the marinara in a blender or food processor to make it thicker.

I also like to keep a jar of broth in the fridge. I save the broth whenever I make our favorite bbq ribs, it’s full of flavor!

Having broth and pomodoro readily available helps me make delicious meal with just a few simple ingredients.
