6 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced

2 tablespoons Pernod

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

2 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold

1/4 pound Chinese snow peas, julienned

1 bunch chervil, stems trimmed, chopped, for garnish


  1. Puree tomatoes in a blender until smooth. If dry, add a tablespoon or two of water. Pass through a medium strainer into a mixing bowl. Stir in Pernod, salt, and pepper. Reserve.

With a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to a platter, leaving butter in pan. Add reserved tomato sauce and julienned snow peas. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced by about one-third. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  3. Break remaining butter in small pieces and stir into sauce along with shrimp. Once smooth, remove from heat, and ladle over bowls of warm fettuccine. Garnish with chervil and serve immediately.
