Maggiano's Shrimp Fra Diavolo

This Maggiano's Shrimp Fra Diavolo recipe tastes nearly identical to the one served at the restaurant. In Italian, Fra Diavolo is a translation of "brother devil." The dish is so named because it packs a healthy wallop of heat, and is not for the faint if heart (or stomach). This item is not always available at Maggiano's, but you can enjoy it any time by making this copycat recipe at home.

Maggiano's Shrimp Fra Diavolo Ingredients

  • 1 package orzo pasta[2]
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, veins removed[3]
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minved
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Maggiano's Shrimp Fra Diavolo Recipe

  1. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and toss with the crushed red pepper and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Set in the refrigerator to marinate for about 20 minutes.[4]
  2. While the shrimp is marinating, prepare the orzo pasta according to the directions on the package.
  3. Heat a large skillet over a medium flame. Add the remaining olive oil and the onion, and saute until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or two.
  4. Turn the heat up to high. Add the shrimp, and cook for about two minutes until it is almost cooked. Salt and pepper to taste. The shrimp should be just starting to turn pink, but still have a touch of grey.
  5. Add the marinara and the Kalamata olives. Bring to a simmer, and cook until the shrimp are pink all the way through.
  6. Toss the orzo in with the shrimp and sauce.
  7. Scoop onto serving plates or bowls, and top with fresh parsley.

  • If you love heat, kick it up a notch by adding fresh serranos or other chilis to the mixture.
