A note about serious food allergies
"Fra diavolo" means "the devil's brother", but there's nothing devilish about this dinner. Indeed, all we're referring to is the heat the red pepper flakes give to the shrimp in their tomato-y, butter-y delicious sauce. Now what's in a name? The compound butter then melts its divine self all over the steak and contains what's called a "Sweety Drop pepper," small, sweet, and, well, drop-like. Great and fun names, but even better, a great and fun dinner.
