Marinated Shrimp on Rice

I just made the most amazing shrimp dish...and then I sat out on my balcony and ate it with my favorite person.  At least 85% of my ingredients are organic.


4-5 cloves garlic
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 pounds fresh raw shrimp (peeled)

1 cup white basmati rice
1 tbsp butter
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth


Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Let sit in fridge for minimum 30 minutes.  Bring rice, broth and butter to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes.  Turn heat completely off and let sit another 10 minutes.  While the rice is sitting cook shrimp and all the marinade in a pan for about 10-15 minutes.  Poor shrimp over rice and serve.
