Directions

  1. If you are using frozen shrimp, remove them from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature before using.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook your pasta according to package directions. 1 or 2 minutes before your pasta is done cooking, ladle about 250ml / 1 cup of the cooking water into a cup.
  3. In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until soft and translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add the wine and stir.
  5. Add the tomatoes and simmer until the wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  6. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce, along with the shrimp and cream, and toss to combine. If you find the sauce is too thick, add a splash of the pasta water.
  7. Add the coriander and serve immediately.
