Heat deep large pan with olive oil, add shrimp and cook until opaque for about 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl, set aside.
Re-using the same pan, add 1 teaspoon of oil and garlic, cook over medium fire until golden brown. Add canned tomatoes and juice, and 1-1.5 cups of water, bring to boil. Reduce heat, simmer and stir occasionally until tomatoes soften and saucy. Remove sauce from heat and add in cherry tomatoes, stir.
