Sautéed Shrimp with Garlic and Capers

To get ready for summer, try this light preparation for lunch or dinner. The Pernod in this recipe enhances the smoothness and the complexity of the dish's flavor. Saffron rice (see accompanying recipe) goes well with this dish. It can be shaped in a mold and unmolded onto the center of an individual serving plate. Arrange the shrimp around the rice in a circle forming a neat, single row, with all the shrimp positioned in the same direction. If this is a main dish rather than an appetizer, serve it with vegetables, such as sauteed yellow or red peppers, as a side dish.
