Oh, this spring or better early summer weather has affected our temper, and there is no mood for jobs and obligations …. Don’t tell me that you have not a tendency to carelessness and walks and drinks! Shrimp in hot tomato sauce is a very classic dish that perfectly accompanies a glass of ouzo (greek traditional drink) or wine, isn’t it? Easy, spicy and delicious food! All you need to accompany them is a good bread, to dip it at the delicious sauce! Ready in just 10 minutes, I think it fits perfectly both in the season and at our disposal! What do you say;
