Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Fra diavolo (which in Italian is referred to as “brother devil”) is a spicy tomato sauce for pasta or seafood, made with crushed red pepper, garlic, and fresh herbs like parsley and basil.

The spicy shrimp is a wonderful heat for those who love Italian red pepper and compliments this dish perfectly seasoned to the heat.

This dish can be made with fresh tomatoes or canned, even jarred marinara sauce, today everything is made from scratch in the recipe the same as I grew up on in the 1970s and mom’s recipe.

The recipe is simplified with a few adaptions with the shrimp be grilled on the barbecue or with the original recipe indoors in a cast-iron skillet.

All these instructions are below with both simple ways to make shrimp diavolo perfect for any pasta you choose to top them with.
