This simple Shrimp with Anise Sauce is a traditional Colombian dish from the department of Sucre, where plain white rice is always served to soak up the aromatic anise sauce.
This dish is so simple that once you make it, it's pretty easy to remember.
Buen provecho and have a nice weekend!
Delicious! Love a new way (for me) to use anise.
Baking is my Zen
Love the shrimp! Not a fan of anise though...
wow, can I have a dish? 🙂
This really looks so delicious.
Love Shrimp And Anise Seeds!, Can't Believe They Are Both In the Same Recipe!
Gorgeous looking, Erica. It would work as an appetizer or main course. Love the rice timbale too.
Erica, the sauce for the shrimp looks so delicious and creamy!
I love the flavor of anise but have only ever had it in desserts! What a nice savory variation.
Very interesting and it looks delicious. I like the anis.
I had only really used anise for sweets and baking, never for a dish like this. I am very intrigued. Sounds amazing
I use a lot of Anise in my Italian desserts and have never seen it used in a savory dish. I absolutely love this! I can't wait to try it! My mouth is watering...
What a unique dish! I never would have thought to pair anise with shrimp but I bet it's delicious!

Waw!! What a stunning dish, dear Erica!!
Beautiful presented too! MMMMMMMMM,..I love anis!! You love it or you don't!
I absolutely love the flavor of anise and use star anise and fennel in a lot of dishes. I like the idea of making it the star of this sauce and look forward to trying it.
Thank you everyone for visiting my site.
Hola Erika! Se podra reemplazar el extracto de anis por un shot de aguardiente?
Pilar- Yes, that sounds delicious!Let me know if you like it!
Thank you for this delightful recipe. I prepared it tonight for a special friend (whose is from Colombia) to honor their world cup triumph. She had not heard of the dish, but we enjoyed it very much.
Looking forward to sharing more recipes in the future. Abrazos.
The sauce is a little thick. Going to try and thin with added wine. Can’t wait to have this
