1.
Place shrimp in large resealable plastic bag. Add white wine and 2 teaspoons of the minced garlic. Marinate at room temperature 30 minutes or in refrigerator for a few hours.

Cut grape tomatoes in quarters. Heat oil in medium-size skillet over medium-low heat. Add the remaining garlic and cook 1 minute; add tomatoes and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly softened. Stir in basil then remove from heat.
