Happy Friday my friends. 

I hope this week has been kind to you and that you are winding down and getting ready for this holiday weekend. 

You know Labor Day is a classic grilling day and right now there is much "debate" going on in my house about what and who will be grilling. 

There may be a compromise in sight though. I was thinking about trying a slow cooker rib recipe so if I do that and focus on side dishes the boys can argue without me over who gets to be master of the grill.

Anyway, when the dust from that debate settled I realized I had not planned a Food Star Friday meal. 
Dang, it! 

So after browsing Food Network and The Cooking Channel, I was still at a loss as to what I would make. That was when I got the idea to pose the question to my Facebook and Twitter followers. I asked people to give me the name of a food star and a protein. 

After several hours of responses the protein I would be using was quite clear - shrimp. 

OK, I love shrimp so I was excited about that idea. But the food star was not as easy. I never really thought about how many food stars there are out there. 

Wow, you all came up with some great people. 

It was a very close race but Giada was the winner. 

As soon as I realized she was the food star I knew exactly what I was going to make. I have watched the show that she makes this dish on several times and it always looked and sounded so good to me. 

Why I didn't come up with this idea I don't know, but I am sure glad that you all did it for me. It was fantastic!

Yield: 4 servings

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

This is a recipe that I love by Giada De Laurentiis. As soon as I tried it I knew I needed to share it with you!
prep time: 15 minscook time: 18 minstotal time: 33 mins


  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined 
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional as needed 
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes 
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons 
  • 1 medium onion, sliced 
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes 
  • 1 cup dry white wine 
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped 
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves 
  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves 
  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves 


  1. Toss the shrimp in a medium bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt and red pepper flakes. Heat the 3 tablespoons oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute for about a minute, toss, and continue cooking until just cooked through - about 1 to 2 minutes
  2. Transfer the shrimp to a large plate; set aside. Add the onion to the same skillet, adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan, if necessary, and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juices, wine, garlic, and oregano. Simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.
  3. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the tomato mixture; toss to coat, and cook for about a minute so the flavors meld together. Stir in the parsley and basil. Season with more salt, to taste, and serve.
