Spicy caramelized tomato shrimp skewers

This post may contain affiliate links, please read my disclosure policy.

I made this one with leftover stuff hanging out in the fridge. The best recipes are usually made this way. It’s also a great way to put all of your cooking knowledge to the test. This proves that less is actually more sometimes. These shrimp are packed with concentrated tomato flavor. Crushed red pepper flakes round out the acidity and sweetness of the tomato paste. Lets jump into the recipe.
