Shrimp in Garlic Sauce - Scampi alla Busara

Hello there. It's been a while, I know. But I'm back for good. Today's recipe is for all you seafood lovers.
Shrimp is the number one seafood when it comes to deliciousness. 
Many people fear cooking shrimp or any other seafood for some reason, but it is really easy. It is important that you buy the most fresh seafood you can get. I bought those bad boys at the local fish market, but frozen will work too. Shrimp is high in calcium and protein, so you should prepare them as often as possible (if you're not among those who have an allergy, sadly). 

Scampi alla Busara is an old recipe for shrimp in sauce. It is really easy and quick, so I challenge you to make it for dinner soon! And please don't be afraid of sticky fingers, shrimp is finger food at its finest.

You need:

1 kilo shrimp (fresh or frozen)
2 tomatoes, pealed and roughly chopped
1 cup white wine of choice
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
3 table spoons olive oil

Put the olive oil in a bigger saucepan and heat until hot. Fry the shrimp for a minute or two, then add the garlic, tomatoes and breadcrumbs and mix well. When the garlic starts to smell deliciously, add the white vine and cover the pan. Leave to cook for ten minutes. Once cooked, sprinkle with parsley and enjoy.
