Tomato Poached Shrimp with Peas, Herbs and Farro: Method

  1. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels, lightly salt and pepper, and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until it just begins to turn golden, about 1 minute. Add Mutti® Crushed Tomatoes (Polpa), 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and stir until combined. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the heat to medium, add the peas, capers, and shrimp, and stir to coat in the sauce. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat to low and stir in the butter a few pieces at a time until melted. Remove from the heat, adjust the seasoning, and set aside.
  3. Combine the arugula and basil on a cutting board and coarsely chop. Stir 1/3 of the herb mixture into the tomato-shrimp mixture. Toss the farro with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, 1/3 of the herb mixture, and salt and pepper to taste. Divide the farro and the tomato shrimp mixture among 4 serving bowls, garnish the remaining herb mixture. Drizzle with more extra-virgin olive oil, if desired, and serve.
