Sicilian shrimp pasta - looking for a recipe

I just returned from a trip to Sicily and enjoyed a week of delicious food. For the most part, I've been able to track down recipes for some of my favorite dishes (e.g pasta alla norma).

However, I had one dish that stayed with me - it was called Spaghetti con Scampi. The sauce was tomato based but had a strong fishy flavor (in a good way) - as if maybe the tomatoes were reduced down with fish stock. I haven't been able to find any recipes for it as outside Italy spaghetti with scampi refers to the garlic and wine-based dish.

Anyone familiar with this dish - and any ideas about how to reproduce it?
