Shrimp with garlic and Pernod - Everything Anna

Shrimp with garlic and Pernod

We'll say it again. Stock your bar with a bottle of Pernod, your freezer with shrimp, and learn this lovely recipe by heart. This is absolutely one of our very favourites; takes less than 10 minutes to make, and should be your go-to when guests drop by unexpectedly. Delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, shell and tail on
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons Pernod
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh at leaf parsley

Preparation

Melt butter with olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add shrimp and Pernod; cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley. 

Note: We like to leave the shell on for cooking, as it locks in the delicious flavour. Although it can be messy. If you wish, remove the shell prior to cooking.
