Note from Delish:

How about try this shrimp recipe with tomato sauce? This is not the usual buttered garlic shrimp recipe that you normally see. Tomato sauce gave this recipe that soury-kick. Using tomato sauce also makes this recipe healthy and good for “heart”.

I saw some people asking why shrimps still has it’s skin and head. Well, FYI, that’s how Asian, or say Filipinos cook shrimp. As the popular line goes – “Ulo pa lang, ulam na”.
