Grilled Shrimp with Fennel Sauce

Grilled Shrimp with Fennel Sauce: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 15 min.
White wine, heavy cream, and brandy create a silky sauce to ladle over the grilled shrimp.


  • 20 large (under 15 count) shrimp
  • 2 Tbs plus 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided use
  • 1 Tbs lime juice
  • 1 tsp ground fennel, divided use
  • 1 Tbs finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbs brandy
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 4 cups cooked rice


  • Peel and devein shrimp; reserve shells. Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil and lime juice in a glass bowl; crush and add 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel. Add shrimp and marinate 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. In large saucepan, combine reserved shrimp shells, 2 teaspoons olive oil and remaining teaspoon ground fennel; saute 3 minutes. Add onion and saute one minute. Add the brandy and flame with a match. Add the wine and cook over high heat until reduced to about 2 tablespoons of liquid. Add cream and bring to a boil; cook 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Strain into a clean pan, pressing to extract as much liquid as possible. Keep warm.
  • Place shrimp on 4 skewers, going through both top and tail of shrimp. Grill on hot grill 4-5 inches above hot coals about 2 minutes per side or until just opaque throughout. Place shrimp on plates and spoon warm sauce on top. Serve with rice.

Ingredient Note: 1 to 1 1/4 pound medium shrimp, 31 to 35 count, can be substituted for 20 large shrimp. Grill about 1 1/2 minutes per side.
