Shrimp with Fresh Fra Diavolo Sauce on a white plate with a fork.

Shrimp with Fresh Fra Diavolo Sauce

Shrimp with Fresh Fra Diavolo sauce (spicy Devil sauce) is best when made with fresh heirloom tomatoes, but canned diced tomatoes will also work. This is a simple, yet elegant, dinner. Quick enough for weeknights, good enough for company
