This recipe for Shrimp Fra Diavolo with Broccoli is one I shared when I belonged to a food blogger recipe re-make club called “The Secret Recipe Club.”

The purpose of the group was to visit an assigned food blogger friend’s website and then choose one of their recipes to remake and repost on your own website. At the time, it helped build a sense of community back when food blogging was something new and was just becoming popular.
This is what I wrote about the recipe for Shrimp Fra Diavolo with Broccoli at that time (2011):

Panic set in….Oh, crud! At 6:00 p.m. last night, I ran outside in the backyard, heart racing, and set up my little table with my styled plate of food. I started snapping away with my camera. I knew the light was crummy, but what could I do?

Somehow, someway I got my weeks messed up (it actually happens more times than I care to admit). I thought I had another week to get my Secret Recipe Club #SRC post finished and to get the photos taken but, I was wrong. It’s due tomorrow and the last thing I want to do is disappoint my scheduled blog for this month Fried Ice and Donut Holes. I just couldn’t bear it!

Believe it or not, when I was assigned the blog Fried Ice and Donut Holes for May’s #SRC secret reveal, I went immediately to Melissa’s blog and chose my recipe (which wasn’t that easy to do because there are so, so many I loved, and wanted to try).

However, after much debate, I finally settled upon Melissa’s Shrimp Fra Diavolo with Broccoli and made it within the same week. Fast forward to today, I’m glad nobody ate the container in the fridge marked “SAVE”, or otherwise I’d really be up a creek without a paddle. LOL

I did make some adaptations to Melissa’s original recipe of Shrimp Fra Diavolo with Broccoli to make it my own, like adding some fresh broccoli to make it a complete meal. The results were delicious!

Fra Diavolo means “spicy brother” so even though I did make my own changes to this recipe of Shrimp Fra’Diavolo, I made sure to keep the dish spicy, hot. Not enough to scare you away, or burn the taste buds off your tongue. Just enough to keep you on your toes and awake enough to know what day it is! HaHa. I think I need another helping 🙂

I love anything with shrimps and I love anything spicy. My partner loves shrimp too but is not that fussed on spicy. He will however eat just about anything put in front of him if it contains broccoli. so this dish looks like a win:win to me :-)Sue
