There are days when it does not seem there is enough hours in the day to make it all happen. This is an opportunity to reach out to one of my favorite bloggers and ask for help. Erica graciously provided one of her authentic Colombian recipes to share with you.
I have been following My Colombian Recipes www.Mycolombianrecipes.com loyally since I started blogging. Erica was born and raised in Colombia and now lives in the U.S.. Erica strives through her blog to bring awareness and appreciation for Colombian culture and food traditions. You may have already discovered her blog. If not, please take the time to stop by and say hello to her. You will not be disappointed.
Without further ado-Welcome back Erica!
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.
I'm off to visit here because this shrimp sounds fantastic!

We love anise anything and this shrimp dish looks divine. But I'm not familiar with anise extract. Wonder if I could use Pernod?Sam
I wish I had had this recipe last night because I was looking for something different to do with shrimp! This looks great and unique – I would love to try! I have everything but the anise extract… 🙂 Thanks for posting!

This sounds and looks really lovely. I had a mussels dish once that was similarly flavoured and I was licking the plate, but did not have the recipe – and had forgotten about it. Thank you!:)Valerie…I will now check out the other site!:)

This looks soooooo good…..
my experience with anise is very limited, but what i know of it, i love! what a terrific sauce and what an elegant final dish!
Interestingly enough, I am doing a shrimp dish for a client next week using sambuca! Great flavor combo. Yours looks decadently delicious, Velva!
Sounds wonderful! Love that it is easy. It is funny because I bought anise seeds for something and used a tiny, tiny bit, and then I thought what the heck am I going to do with these now. Well thank you because now I know..lol:)
