Delicious Spaghetti with Shrimp in Sicilian Sauce


This dish is a hearty meal itself. The puttanesca and fra diavolo in the sauce produce a memorable accompaniment to shrimp as well as mussels, clams or even canned or frozen lobster meat.















1 pound spaghetti
1 tablespoon olive oil, extra-virgin
8 anchovy fillets
oiled packed , oil reserved drain, chop filets
2 cloves garlic
29 ounces tomatoes, canned, crushed
in puree
½ cup black olives
mediterranean, pit and chop
2 tablespoons capers
bottled, rinsed, coarsely chopped if large
1 teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound shrimp
medium, peeled and deveined


Bring a large pot of slightly salted water to a boil over high heat.

Add the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until barely tender.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil and oil from the anchovy can in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat.

Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until golden, about 1 minute.

Add the anchovy filets and stir until they dissolve into paste, about 1 minute.

Into the skillet, stir in the tomatoes, olives, capers, oregano and red pepper, and bring to a simmer.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp turn pink and firm, about 3 minutes.

Drain the pasta and return to the pot.

Add the shrimp sauce and mix well.

Transfer to a warmed, large serving bowl.

Serve immediately.
