Cuban Shrimp
Ben Gebo

This dish delivers the big flavors of Cuban comfort food. It starts with a sofrito (onions, peppers, and garlic sautéed in olive oil) and classic spices (cumin, smoked paprika, and oregano). It ends with tomatoes and shrimp. The savory result works as an elegant appetizer or homey main course—spoonable over brown rice, bulgur, or whole wheat orzo. A simple green salad completes the meal. If you’re hot for a side dish, try Roasted Garlic Green Beans, Roasted Garlic Asparagus, or Broiled Summer Squash with Roasted Pepper Oil. Tips: In a pinch, regular paprika can sub for the smoked kind. Also, you can use almost any type of canned tomatoes. If you only have whole ones, chop coarsely before adding.
