      Translated from Italian, fra diavolo means “brother devil.” Not sure why the “brother” part, but for certain the “devil” part has to do with the spicy kick this dish has. The creaminess of the coconut milk tones down the kick just a tiny bit, so if it’s not enough heat for you, feel free to add some more red pepper flakes. The recipe, after the jump.
