Sauteed Shrimp with Garlic and Tomatoes

I made this dish a while ago, but wanted to share it since it's really delicious. I usually roast my shrimp, since they always are cooked perfectly, and it's really quick and convenient. This doesn't take much longer, and as long as you keep an eye on things, will also cook them perfectly!

Recipe: Sauteed Shrimp with Garlic and Tomatoes
Adapted from Mark Bittman

2 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, sliced or minced
1 cup diced tomato (I like using grape or cherry tomatoes, and halving them)
1/2 lb shrimp

Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook until golden - don't let it burn! Add tomatoes, and cook until they start to burst. Add shrimp to the pan, trying to arrange them so they are in a single layer. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip them over. Continue to flip over every couple minutes, until they are pink all over and the tomatoes and garlic are bubbly.
