If possible, in a cast iron pan with a little bit of canola oil with a nod of butter gently colour the onion until golden brown.
While stirring with wooden spoon, add the garlic, the green pepper, tomato paste, Xéres, tamarin, the honey, Cayenne and the Indian leaf. Let it all cook together for 5 mins.

- Sweet potato stew
In a stewpot, colour the onion until golden. Add the potatoes, then the carrots the garlic and the tomatoes.
Once everything has come together after 2-3mins of cooking at medium heat and well coloured, deglaze with white wine. Reduce to dry then add the water. Bring to a boil then lower down the heat for 30mins.
Right before serving add the basil and the parsley.
- Confit tomatoes
Tomatoes in a bowl, olive oil in, sugar, salt & pepper. Branches of thymes and the garlic.
Gently mix everything altogether then off on a cooking pan covered with parchment paper, in the oven at 250F for 1h 30mins.
On a plate, put the stew first, then the shrimps and then the confit tomatoes all over.
Make sure the confit tomatoes aren't overcooked, not a jam but confit!
