Melt some butter in a saucepan and add some minced garlic. I use the ready prepared kind as I know I’d never get the pieces that small if I were chopping it myself! After a few minutes add some white wine and let cook for a few more minutes.
Add a chopped and seeded tomato, tomato paste, chicken stock, heavy cream and paprika. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.
By this point it looks rather like a soup! So thicken the sauce, sprinkle a little xanthan gum over the sauce – it’s way less scary than it sounds! Whisk it in thoroughly. Then add some raw shrimp (i remove the shells but up to you whether you do the same – tail-on looks nice!).
Bring the mixture to a boil again, and cook until the shrimp are done. The sauce should have thickened nicely. Check for seasoning then serve, sprinkled with a little extra paprika.
