Shrimp Fra Diablo
 
"Fra Diablo" means Friar Devil. Any "deviled" food is spicey. Friar is just a slang sir name. So one translation could be "Mr. Spicey".

Buy 12-15 shrimp, med sized , peel and devein leaving the tails on. Coat a saute pan (straight sided skillet works best)with olive oil. Chop 5 cloves fresh garlic and throw into oil and simmer a few minutes. Next add 2 tbs. chopped dried chili peppers (or any of your favorite type of hot pepper,use to taste depending on how hot you can stand it).
Simmer few mins. Add shrimp and a tblspoon of fresh or dried basil. Saute lightly till shrimp are almost done. Add 2 cups of diced (1/2") plum tomatoes (the riper the better) or 1 can of crushed tomatoes. Simmer till tomatoes are thouroughly cooked and mushy. Serve over pasta. Top with fresh chopped parsely and fresh grated romano cheese.


Substitutions:
Use Calimari instead of shrimp, or both, or evan mussels, clams etc.
Add red wine or burgandy just before tomatoes
