Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Total Time:
33 min
15 min
18 min

4 servings

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional as needed
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves

Toss the shrimp in a medium bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt and red pepper flakes. Heat the 3 tablespoons oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute for about a minute, toss, and continue cooking until just cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a large plate; set aside. Add the onion to the same skillet, adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan, if necessary, and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juices, wine, garlic, and oregano. Simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the tomato mixture; toss to coat, and cook for about a minute so the flavors meld together. Stir in the parsley and basil. Season with more salt, to taste, and serve.

Absolutely fantastic and super simple to make. I always double it and find I have a lot of sauce so I make it with wheat pasta. Delicious!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
While very good a little bland for my palate. My take on this recipe is: I cut the shrimp into thirds, toss with garlic, red pepper and salt.....set aside. I sauté onions sliced lengthwise, poblano pepper julienned, sliced fennel and shredded carrots til cartelized. Then I add the shrimp, sauté briefly, add wine and a can of a Rotel or similar tomatoes with peppers. Simmer until reduced, add herbs. a party in your mouth! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of my go-to shrimp recipes. I pair it with lemon, basil, Parmesan spaghetti. Yummy! I sauté the shrimp then remove them from the pan, make the sauce and let it simmer until it thickens, it can take a while. I then add in the shrimp just to warm through. I like making this with diced fresh Roma tomatoes rather than the canned ones and these don't create much juice so the sauce thickens quicker. When I use fresh tomatoes I sauté the onions and garlic til soft and lightly browned then deglaze with the wine, reduce this a bit then add the tomatoes, oregano, s & p. Cook until tomatoes break down and release their juices, just a few minutes. Then add the shrimp and herbs and warm through. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor on this dish is definitely in the sauce (it is pretty good), but the shrimp itself is kind of bland. The problem is that my sauce never thickened like it does in the video. I will give the recipe another shot using less oil and draining the diced tomatoes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow, very tasty, I've made this twice now and both times it was a restaurant quality meal. Didn't take long to put together, perfect amount of food for 4 people, kitchen wasn't destroyed, and everybody cleaned their plates. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing recipe, easy and perfect way to prepare shrimp. The sauce is fantastic with the white wine, tomatoes, and onion. I used dried herbs instead of fresh since it's all I have available, but it didn't matter. The white wine is what really makes the dish special, and I don't even like wine. Don't overcook the shrimp and you'll love this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought it was delicious! I do agree with jwebster680 - my sauce never thickened either and I also would cut back on the fresh herbs next time. but can't wait to make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the first meal I made for my husdand he love it some much, I thinks it's partly to blame for the great marriage we have. We have been married for 7 years and we frequently host dinner for other couples. My husband request for this dish everytime. He state " if you find something that works stick to it" and it is a hit every time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
