Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 1 minute.

Add the onions and garlic and cook until softening, about 1 ½ minutes, stirring frequently. 

Add the shrimp and tomatoes and cook until the shrimp begins to turn pink about 1 minute. Turn the shrimp over. Add the wine and cook for 1 minute. 

Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon and set aside. Continue cooking the liquid left in the pan until it has reduced by two-thirds, about 4 minutes.

Add the thyme and parsley and cook for 1 minute. 

Add the shrimp back in just before ready to serve; the shrimp should be slightly firm and plump. 

Stir in the lemon juice and butter. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove the skillet from the heat. Divide the shrimp among plates and serve with the sauce evenly over top.
