Holy hotness!! Make this only if you like things hot!! 🙂   I just got back from vacation and sort of shot my food budget, so I needed to figure out something to make with ingredients I already had on hand, so viola, shrimp diablo!

Shrimp Diablo


  • 1 zucchini, sliced and quartered
  • Olive oil for marinade
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3-4 jalapenos, minced
  • 1 can all natural tomato sauce
  • Crushed red pepper, to taste
  • Dried basil and oregano


Set oven to broil. Marinade sliced zucchini with olive oil and season with your favorite seasoning (I used Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute). In separate dish, prepare shrimp and marinade in olive oil and favorite seasoning. Let both marinade while preparing sauce. Heat coconut oil over medium heat and sauté onion and garlic until translucent. Add minced jalapenos and cook additional 2-3 minutes. Add tomato sauce, crushed red pepper, basil, and oregano. Increase heat and stir rapidly to prevent burning for 5-10 minutes, then reduce to a simmer. While sauce is simmering, spread zucchini quarters on baking sheet and broil for about 5 minutes or until slightly charred. Cook the shrimp over medium heat in a separate skillet. Add shrimp and zucchini to tomato sauce.
