Heat plumps the tiny tomatoes, creating a luscious compote to top grilled foods or serve as a side dish.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook until soft and golden, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, season well with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until tomatoes are just warm and ready to burst, 3 to 5 minutes. Add basil and cook until just wilted, about 1 minute. Spoon compote over pork skewers.
