Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Venice Canal and Gondolier

Gondolier plying the canals in Venice, Italy

You are right if you thought this dish was going to be spicy, or at least it should. Fra Diavolo is Italian for “Brother Devil”, and this zesty sauce goes well with pasta and seafood. You may want to experiment a little by replacing the cream with a splash of wine or vodka or replace the salt with some chopped anchovies to really bump up the flavour.
