    Fra Diavolo...the "sauce of the devil". I find spicey sauces work really well with shellfish, this sauce is sure put a little fire in your bite and maybe even a little fire elsewhere!! Enjoy!

    1. 1
      In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with 7 cloves garlic and shallots over medium heat.
    2. 2
      DO NOT BURN THE GARLIC -- If you do, Start Again.
    3. 3
      When the garlic starts to sizzle, pour in the tomatoes and tomato sauce.
    4. 4
      Season with salt and red pepper.
    5. 5
      Bring to a boil.
    6. 6
      Lower the heat, add the white wine and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    7. 7
      Add in the Basil at the 15 minute mark!
    8. 8
      Meanwhile -- have a glass of wine and continune on --
    9. 9
      In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat.
    10. 10
      Add the scallops, and 1 clove of garlic. Season with Salt & pepper.
    11. 11
      Cook for about 4 minutes. 2 minutes per side should be good. You want the Scallop to still have a spring to it when you press on it. Try not to over cook the suckers -- It will ruin your meal. A nice pearly white and a spring to it is an Excellently Cook Scallop
    12. 12
      Add the perfectly cooked Scallops to the tomato mixture, and stir in the parsley.
    13. 13
      Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the sauce just begins to bubble.
    14. 14
      You can serve this sauce over pasta, rice or just eat it plain it's just that good.

      I have to give this sauce 5-stars, since I can't seem to stop making it! My grocer had bay scallops on sale, and this sauce was great with them! I carmelized the onions a bit, and sauteed the scallops. Then served the pasta and sauce on top of the scallops. You are right, who needs the noodles! I ate it plain. YUM!

      Absolutely marvelous. As we like "pasta asciutta", we used 1/2 lb fresh tomatoes and no tomato sauce. Complimenti and grazie!

      I made this for dinner today but used shrimp instead of Scallops. It was good but really should have simmered for longer than 30 minutes. The sauce was a bit runny. Would be great over rice, but I served it plain with Risotto on the side.
