We’re Very Excited About Plated’s Fra Diavolo Recipe

We’ve got a brand new Plated recipe on the menu: Shrimp Fra Diavolo, aka garlic butter shrimp + delicate angel hair noodles + spicy tomato sauce. Never heard of this Italian favorite? Well, you’re going to want to try it.

Fra diavolo, an Italian-American cooking style that often includes lobster alongside a spicy red sauce and noodles, translates to “devil monk” or “devil brother,” due to the spicy crushed red pepper that provides a real kick. But, it’s not clear that the dish itself hails from the old country. Though there are claims of Neapolitan origins and inspiration, many argue that today’s “fra diavolo” is an Italian-American creation, likely first prepared in or around New York City. Grazie, 1940s Little Italy!

So, onto Plated’s take. Our chefs whipped up a garlicky, tomato-filled dinner laced with spicy flavor in the form of crushed red pepper flakes. Though most commonly made with lobster and linguine, Plated is swapping in sweet, succulent shrimp, and giving a clever nod to the diavolo by adding twirly Angel hair noodles. A side of cheesy Asiago-garlic bread is perfect for soaking up all that extra, devilishly delicious sauce. No matter where this dish hails really from, though, it’s a pasta you’re not going to want to miss.
