Ready Time

45 mins


9 servings


  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Fettuccine pasta for 9 people


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the fettuccine pasta according to the package instructions until al dente, then set aside. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

Add the peeled and deveined shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until they’re pink and cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set them aside with the cooked pasta.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the white wine to the skillet, scraping the bottom to release any browned bits.

Bring the wine to a simmer and cook until the liquid has almost completely reduced. Add the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, dried oregano, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes to the skillet.

Stir well to combine, then bring the sauce to a simmer.

Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors have melded together and the sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in the chopped parsley, basil, and paprika.

Add the cooked shrimp back to the skillet and toss to coat in the spicy tomato sauce.

Add the cooked fettuccine pasta to the skillet, tossing everything together until the pasta is well coated in the sauce. Serve immediately, dividing the Spicy Shrimp Fra Diavolo Delight among 9 plates.


You can customize the spice level to your taste by adjusting the amount of red pepper flakes.

For a milder sauce, reduce or omit the red pepper flakes.

For an extra spicy kick, add more! Fresh herbs make a big difference in flavor, so try not to skip the parsley and basil.

If you do need to substitute, use dried herbs but reduce the amount to a third.

To ensure the shrimp cook evenly, pat them dry with paper towels before adding them to the skillet.

This helps the seasonings stick better too! Plan ahead and prep the ingredients before starting to cook, as the recipe moves quickly once the shrimp are added to the skillet.

This recipe makes 9 servings, perfect for a dinner party or special occasion.

If you’re cooking for a smaller crowd, simply reduce the ingredient quantities.

Don’t overcook the fettuccine pasta, as it will continue to cook a bit after draining.

Reserve some pasta water before draining, just in case the sauce needs a thinning out.

For an extra rich sauce, add 1-2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet with the garlic in the beginning.

This will add a depth of flavor and a velvety texture!
