Shrimp Fra Diavolo

One day I realised there is something missing in my life and it just instantly clicked that it is SHRIMPS.

Haven't had shrimps in ages so I said HEY LETS GO BUY THEM LITTLE THANGS.

So, I went to Hyperstar. Bought a kilogram of shrimps for a healthy Rs. 1899 which after devaining were turned out to be 546 grams. BOO HOO !!!

Are you all ready to see what I did with them shrimps?

Ready or not I have to show you because I have spend a lot on a single recipe. SO GODDAMN LISTEN TO ME EVERYONE.

The recipe that I'm about to tell you all is a spicy shrimp pasta and its called 'Shrimp Fra Diavolo' BEWARE IT'S SPICY.

So all the girls who want to get married or want to save their marriages take you pen, pencils & notebooks out and write down the following:


450 grams uncooked spaghetti

1 pound medium shrimps

1 tablespoon garlic paste

3 teaspoon red chili flakes 

1 teaspoon dried oregano

8 pitted & sliced green olives

2 diced large shallots (long egg shaped onions)

The spaghetti is boiled and the shrimps are marinated. Take out a non stick pan and heat the rest 1/4 cup olive oil on medium high heat.

Add shrimps, let them cook for 30 seconds with stirring or turning them. Start stirring them. Cook for 2-3 more minutes.

Now add every ingredient left. 1 teaspoon chili flakes, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, tomato can and olives. Cook for 4 minutes. STIR! STIR LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.

This is the time where you can add your salt and black pepper according to taste or later while adding spaghetti but when you add salt and pepper while adding spaghetti it will be very difficult to stir. So I suggest you to add it before.

Add spaghetti and the chopped coriander and stir to coat the spaghetti well.
