When you are craving seafood, and want something spicy and non dairy, shrimp fra diavolo is great dish to try. After reading some different recipes to get ideas, I thought I would create my own dish… no recipe is the way to go.
Menu: Shrimp Fra Diavolo, Garlic Bread, and Roasted Asparagus
Ingredients: 1/2 LB of Shrimp, a few Tablespoons of olive oil, sea salt, red pepper flakes, 1 head of garlic, non-dairy margarine, 1 loaf of non-dairy italian bread, a box of your favorite pasta, 1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce, 1 bundle of asparagus.
As I do with any good Italian dish, I started by sauteing some onions in olive oil, with a pinch of sea salt.
Once the onions started to turn translucent (clear), I added some garlic and red pepper flakes (as much as you think you’ll like… you can always add more later).
While the onions and garlic were sauteing, I chopped the ends off my asparagus bundle, and tossed with olive oil (about one tablespoon) and some sea salt. I also made sure to chop some extra garlic for my garlic bread…
After putting the asparagus in the 450 degree oven, I prepared my garlic bread. On one half of the bread, I spread about 2 tablespoons of margarine, sprinkled with garlic powder and salt (as much of each as you’d like). On the other side, I drizzled about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and put about 4 cloves of minced garlic on top. I then put the loaf back together, wrapped in tin foil, and put in the oven with the asparagus.
Back on the stove, I added my shrimp to the sauteing onions and garlic…
While the asparagus and garlic bread were working in the oven, I added my jar of favorite tomato sauce to the onions,garlic, and shrimp.
While all of these things are working, make sure to boil some water for your pasta of choice. Salt the water with about a pinch of sea salt…
After 10 minutes in the oven, turn the asparagus, and unwrap the garlic bread. It’s good to take the bread out of the foil, and open it up so it can get all crunchy and golden brown. This is also a good time to add the pasta to the water.
In 10 more minutes, take the asparagus and garlic bread out of the oven, and pour the pasta into something to drain.
Then add the pasta back into the sauce and shrimp mixture. Add red pepper flakes to taste, stir, and get ready to enjoy your great dinner!
