Paprika Shrimp w/ Tomatoes & Cilantro

If you are looking for a light dish to entertain with this summer. This is the dish for you–super simple to make and packed full of flavor!

 Years ago, I use to make a similar dish. I made it at least once a week. From what I recall, I found the recipe in a  diet cookbook in the early 2000’s. My best friend recently reminded me of the dish, and asked me when the last time I had made the paprika shrimp. I couldn’t answer her. It has been at least 5 years since I made this dish, and I couldn’t remember for the life of me where I found the recipe.

So, from memory, I decided to recreate the recipe from taste. I must say that I did a great job recreating the recipe. I remembered that their were very few ingredients involved in the dish. I paired it with a rice pilaf and steamed spinach and asparagus.
