Author Notes: My mother made this recipe all throughout my teen years, then when I moved away on special visits. The sauce is so good you will want to drink it. —TravelEatLove

In This Recipe
- Sautee the tomatoes and dill in the olive oil for just about a minute.
- Gently lay the shrimp into the pan so that each is fully exposed to the bottom of the pan. Cook until pink on one side, then flip over.
- Drizzle the ouzo or sambuca over the shrimp, and cook until the shrimp are pink on the other side.
- Slowly pour cream in, stirring gently to combine the ingredients. Increase the heat a little so that everything is simmering. Once the sauce is hot and the shrimp are cooked through, add the cooked pasta directly to the sauce and stir.
