Description

Chef John's recipe for spicy shrimp fra diavolo will turn your weeknight pasta or rice into a memorable meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra large shrimp (16-20), peeled and deveined, tail left on
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or more as needed
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 pinch Aleppo pepper flakes, or to taste
  • ½ yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 ½ cups canned crushed tomatoes (such as San Marzano)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  1. Combine shrimp, olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and Aleppo pepper flakes in a bowl; toss to coat shrimp completely in oil and spices.
  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat until very hot. Cook shrimp in a single layer until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn shrimp and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute more. Transfer shrimp to a bowl.
  3. Heat the same skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion with a pinch of salt in hot skillet until onions are slightly golden and just becoming translucent; 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and oregano to onion; cook and stir until fragrant, 15 to 30 seconds.
  4. Pour white wine into onions and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon; add crushed tomatoes and lower heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until tomato mixture thickens and flavors blend, 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Return shrimp to skillet along with any accumulated juices in the bowl. Cook until shrimp are reheated, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir parsley and basil into sauce and season with salt, red pepper flakes, and Aleppo pepper flakes.
