Ingredients
  • ¾ pound uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, or more to taste
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 (12 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 sprigs parsley, chopped, or more to taste, divided
  • 3 leaves fresh basil, chopped, or more to taste, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (12 ounce) package spaghetti, or as needed
Directions
  1. 1. Place shrimp on a work surface. Slice each shrimp horizontally through the middle, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open the 2 sides and spread them out like butterfly wings.
  2. 2. Mix 2 tablespoons oil, minced garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Toss shrimp into the oil marinade and set aside.
  3. 3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a pan over low heat. Add sliced garlic. Cook until golden and infused in the oil, about 2 minutes. Remove garlic. Increase heat to medium. Add shrimp and marinade; cook until shrimp is pink, about 5 minutes. Remove shrimp from pan.
  4. 4. Add onion, yellow bell pepper, and jalapeno to the pan; cook and stir until tender, about 10 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, 1/2 the parsley, 1/2 the basil, oregano, and black pepper. Cook until reduced to your desired thickness, 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. 5. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  6. 6. Toss spaghetti noodles into the tomato-pepper sauce and stir in shrimp. Sprinkle remaining parsley and basil on top. Serve immediately.
