Good, spicy, simple recipe! I added just a couple of things that turned this into a 5-star, "quick and easy" for my family - 1 pureed red bell pepper, and chopped fresh parsley and basil. The guys are loving the heat - and told me it's a keeper. Thanks!
This recipe needs help. But with a few minor modifications, it can be terrific. First, don't cook the shrimp separately - you're losing a lot of flavor that way. I heated up about 1 tbls of olive oil and 1/2 tbls of butter and sauteed the chopped garlic, chopped shallot (because I had it), red pepper (and I even added a little cayenne), a little basil and then the shrimp. Saute for just a couple of minutes then remove the shrimp into a separate bowl - leave garlic/everything else in the pan. Then I added the wine (a bit more than 2 Tbls) and reduced it before adding the tomatoes - here I added a touch more olive oil as well. Simmer/cook down and when ready to serve w/ pasta, add the shrimp back and cook for a couple of minutes. I put drained pasta directly into the sauce and it soaked up the sauce wonderfully. I also made only a 1/2 batch and it was enough for two meals for my husband and me. With these changes, it was delicious!
A pretty good recipe- very similar to my mom's shrimp fra diavolo. My recommendation is to cook the shrimp in olive oil and a little light margarine with crushed red pepper prior to making the sauce. The shrimp just seem to soak up the spicy flavor of the red pepper infused oil. I love spicy though..... I always use cheap but relatively good red table wine (love that Concha y Toro!) and plenty of it, though if it becomes too thin you can add tomato paste. Overall, very good with those changes.
This is the beginning of a good recipe. The garlic taste was a bit too strong. Next time, I'll sautee the shrimp in the garlic, then add the garlic to the sauce to simmer. I added a little Italian Seasoning to the recipe, and that filled in the "missing flavor." I might season the shrimp just a bit, too.
I loved this recipe and everyone I made it for couldn't get enough. I held out on using the red wine and just sauted the garlic in a pan with olive oil. I then added whole tomatoes which I cut up prior to putting in the pan. I let that all simmer while I boiled my pasta and gradually kept ading hot pepper flakes and fresh basil. I also added scallops and hot italian sausage(for that extra kick) to the sause along with the shrimp. I will definitely be making this recipe again soon! AWESOME!
Good start to a recipe that ended up being fabulous. I sauteed garlic and onion in evoo and then added in my shrimp and red pepper flakes. Just as the shrimp turned pink I added the sauce and a little red wine. Loved by all Margaret and thank you!
Good for such a simple recipe to prepare. Will definately make again, next time I will not use the full amount of red pepper flakes. It was a bit too spicy (and I like spicy). Thanks for the recipe.
i liked this a lot BUT and it's a big BUT after i tried it for the second time with some major modifications. the first time i made it it was sooo spicy and the flavors were right and then it lacked some in other departments. i modified with using only 2 cans of diced tomatoes, 7 cloves of garlic, 1/4 tsp of basil, 1/4 tsp of cayenne, 3/4 tsp pepper flakes (i can't believe this called for 2 tsps!), and i substituted the red wine for white. i also added about 1/4 tsp of brown sugar, then sprinkled some lemon juice over it once served. it was awesome!
