I had this entrée at one of my favorite restaurants and found it so satisfying although they gave me way more food than I could eat at one sitting. I experimented with it at home and came up with this version.
1 lb large shrimp (cleaned)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
4 tsp garlic and olive oil
Pinch of salt & pepper
4 cups fennel seed
4 tsp grated cheese
1. Heat oil in skillet.
2. Add fennel, garlic, salt and pepper, heat 5 minutes.
3. Toss in shrimp and cook 3 to 6 minutes.
4. Add lime.
5. Can serve over a small serving of pasta with cheese on top if desired.
Crunchy and slightly sweet, fennel is high in Vitamin C and dietary fiber, as well as containing healthy doses of magnesium and iron. Shrimp is an excellent source of protein and is low in saturated fat, low in sugar and low in calories. Lime juice adds flavor while helping aid in digestion. Ladies need calcium, so go on and add that grated cheese not only for taste but also for the healthy benefits, too.
