Satanic Shrimp Fra Diavolo – Cooking WIth Butler

July 19, 2010 · Print This Article


  • 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.
