One Pot Shrimp, Tomato and Potato Stew

I don’t know about you, guys but I have a big problem what to cook on Mondays! No midweek, end of the week, just Mondays. It’s like my whole inspiration is gone. Just staring at my fridge and it comes…Nothing.

Lucky me, I had some seafood in the freezer that saved me this week! You know I love shrimp (prawns)! Have used them with cauliflower fried rice, in Jambalaya or Risotto, but never in a stew….And what better way to finish the day than with a quick, really easy one pot meal?

Well, not just a meal.

One Pot Shrimp, Tomato and Potato Stew

A hearty stew at this time of the year is exactly what you need. All the great flavors from the local markets harvest packed in a quick, easy one pot shrimp (prawn) tomato and potato stew.

Trust me, you are going to love with this perfect fall stew recipe, made with fresh tomatoes (they are so great now!), shrimp and small potatoes. You can tell that I have been spending my whole weekend exploring our local area and all the farms we were able to find.

One Pot Shrimp, Tomato and Potato Stew

I like to make my own tomato sauce old style. I mean old, how it was done 20-30 years ago. Come on, don’t laugh! It is hands down the best and easiest way to have a healthy tomato sauce, especially if you are making small quantities.

So, I take a fresh tomato, cut it in half and then have my grated box placed in a large bowl. I take the cut side of tomato, place it on the coarse side of the grater and just grate. In less than 2 minutes you’ll have the most amazing tomato sauce. You can find a short video here, how to do it 🙂 You will never go back to pre packed tins or bottles.

Best of all?

The whole dish comes together in just 40 minutes!

I tend to have trouble coming up with dinner ideas on Thursdays. I feel like I have made everything from Monday to Wednesday. Then, I will usually ask Bryan if there is any old dishes that he wants. That always helps.

This stew sounds very comforting! I really love shrimps too! It is nice that this stew is thick and hearty. I think Bryan will like this. Sharing!
