Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Small to medium shrimp don't really need to be deveined, but they look prettier that way. The vein of large shrimp may contain grit so it must be removed.
  • tip 2
    Fennel tastes similar to anise but sweeter and more delicate. As with all seeds, crush fennel in a mortar and pestle to release flavor before use.
  • tip 3
    Frozen shrimp can be used in this recipe; thaw under cold water before use.
  • tip 4
    A French baguette, tossed green salad and banana sundaes complete the menu.
