  • 2 lb Panamei uncooked shrimp, peeled.
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ground achiote or annatto powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder, adjust to your preference
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 12-14 oz. spaghetti, uncooked
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt to taste

Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan, and cook the onion, garlic, and seasonings over a medium heat for 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes and cook for 5 more minutes.

Add the broth and tomato paste, mix, and cook for 10 more minutes.

Turn down to a simmer, stir in the pasta and cook for 7 mins, stirring occasionally to prevent the pasta from sticking. Add and stir in Shrimp.

Cook for about 3-5 mins until shrimp and pasta is cooked. Add more seasonings, if needed.

Sprinkle with cilantro and parmesan cheese.
