Shrimp Fra Diavolo features sautéed shrimp tossed in a spicy tomato sauce spiked with white wine. It's a quick & easy delicious pasta recipe perfect for the weeknight dinner table.
Heat a large skillet over high heat.
Combine the shrimp, half of the red pepper flakes, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Toss to blend. Add the shrimp to the hot skillet and assemble in a single layer. Let cook without stirring until the bottoms turn pink, about 30-45 seconds. Flip the shrimp over and cook until pink throughout, then transfer the shrimp to a bowl and set aside.
Cool the skillet for a few minutes. Return the skillet to the burner set to LOW. Add 3 tablespoons oil and 3 tablespoons minced garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, over low heat, until the garlic is light golden, about 7-10 minutes. Mix in remaining red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, sugar, tomatoes and wine. Increase the heat to medium-high and simmer until thickened, about 8 minutes.
Stir reserved shrimp and accumulated juices, remaining garlic and parsley into the sauce. Simmer until the shrimp are heated through, about 1 minute. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Serve immediately.
