5:30 CHALLENGE: 5 INGREDIENTS, 30 MINUTES
This recipe from Martha Waldrop of Parrish, Fla., combines tomatoes with fresh basil, olives and shrimp. It's flash-cooked, so the tomatoes and herbs retain their just-picked flavor. If you can't find garlic oil, saute 2 to 3 minced garlic cloves in olive oil before adding the shrimp.
