TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
Chopping the shrimp into bite-sized pieces allows them to be easily incorporated into our fresh tomato sauce, enhancing the incredibly rich flavors of this vibrant fish dish.

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
Hailing from Calabria (a region of southern Italy known for its spicy red peppers), this specialty chile paste lends the perfect kick of bright heat to our sauce.
