Shrimp in Tomato-Garlic Sauce

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 6 tablespoons of the olive oil. When the olive oil is very hot, sauté the shrimp until they become opaque, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, onion and jalapeno chiles and continue cooking for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add tomato puree, lime juice, thyme, salt and pepper and continue cooking until the sauce thickens, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  4. Add cabbage, if desired, and cilantro and continue cooking for 1 minute.
  5. Serve with rice and lime wedges.
