I use this recipe to make both Shrimp Fra Diavolo and Lobster Fra Diavolo, just substitute the shrimp with Lobster meat. We usually serve it over linguine. If you like it hot just increase the red pepper flakes we always do!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 teaspoon salt and the red pepper flakes.
  2. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the oil over a medium high flame. Add the shrimp and saute until just cooked through, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to a large plate and set aside.
  3. Add the onion to the same skillet and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes with their juices, wine, garlic, and oregano, and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.
  5. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the tomato mixture and toss to coat.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley and basil.
  7. Season with more salt to taste and serve over linquine or your favorite pasta.

While I'm sure this recipe is fact, I know it is! I find it inappropriate that you don't give credit to Giada De Laurentiis as this IS HER RECIPE!

Come on now...
