For Serving (optional):

  • 1 Chopped Chopped fresh basil or parsley for garnish
  • Grated Parmesan cheese


Cook the shrimp:

  • Season the shrimp with salt, pepper, and half the red pepper flakes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray.
  • Add the seasoned shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they turn pink and opaque. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.

Make the Sauce:

  • In the same skillet, spray with cooking spray.
  • Add minced garlic and chopped onion. Sauté until the onion is softened and the garlic is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in the red pepper flakes and cook for another minute.
  • Pour in diced tomato, Italian seasoning, and broth, stirring to combine.
  • Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly.
  • Once the sauce has thickened, return the cooked shrimp to the skillet. Toss the shrimp in the sauce until they are well coated.
  • Allow the shrimp to simmer in the sauce for an additional 2-3 minutes to absorb the flavors.


  • Serve the Shrimp Fra Diavolo over cooked pasta of your choice.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
