What a great unexpected combination of flavors. You've gotta taste this shrimp in a licorice-flavored sambuca sauce and see for yourself!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sambuca (licorice-flavored liqueur)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

What to Do

  1. Season the shrimp with the salt and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and sauté the scallions for 3 to 4 minutes, until tender. Add the shrimp and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, just until pink. Stir in the tomatoes, cream, and liqueur.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the water and flour; stir until smooth then add to the skillet and stir until thickened. Serve immediately.

Notes

For a heartier meal, serve the shrimp over warm cooked linguine or your favorite pasta or even yellow rice.

Thank you gwadsworth1 I was thinking the same thing! I will try it with something citrice and "heat", Yumm

Hmm. What if you really don't like licorice? Any suggestions for other liquers that could be substituted, like Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or some other flavor? I would think an orange flavor with some chili-pepper heat would be pretty good with shrimp for instance.
