Shrimp Fra Diavolo

One of my favorite pasta dishes is the Shrimp Fra Diavolo or the “shrimp brother devil”, this spicy seafood tomato sauce is great with almost any pasta, even rice; the spiciness matches very well with the natural sweetness of the shrimp. It is also very easy and fast to make, enjoy!

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes

How to make this:

  1. Peeled and deveined the shrimps, pad them dry completely, toss them in the red pepper flakes, salt, and olive oil
  2. Heat up the pan on high, sear the shrimps on a single layer for 1 min each
  3. Take out the shrimps, add a little more oil. Chop the onion, mince the garlic, cook them in the same pan until they turn translucent
  4. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, let it cook for about 2 min, then add the crushed tomatoes and oregano
