Shrimp Fra Diavolo (paleo and slow cooker)This paleo Shrimp Fra Diavolo recipe is from page 208 of the The Everything Weeknight Paleo Cookbook, edited by Michelle Fagone (Cavegirl Cuisine). Copyright ©2014 by F+W Media, Inc.

Serve this spicy sauce over hot “Paleo pasta,” that is, spaghetti squash. Spaghetti sauash is an excellent substitute for pasta. When cooked in the oven for 40-50 minutes, the squash becomes soft enough to lightly separate with a fork, forming angel hair-like pasta.


Shrimp Fra Diavolo (slow cooker)

 Shrimp Fra Diavolo (paleo and slow cooker)


  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil (or preferred cooking oil)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3-5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon minced Italian parsley (and maybe a little more for garnish)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly fround black pepper
  • 1/4 pound medium-size shrimp, shelled


  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute’ the onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes for 8-10 minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent.
  2. Add the onion mixture, tomatoes, parsley, and black pepper to a 4-quart slow cooker. Stir. Cook on low for 2-3 hours.
  3. Add the shrimp. Stir, cover, and cook on high for 15 minutes or until the shrimp is fully cooked.
  4. Note: As an alternative to the book recipe (especially if you are adding this atop spaghetti squash): At the step where you add the shrimp, you may also want to add a 1/4 cup of water, white wine, or broth.
  5. Enjoy!
