This is a quick and flavorful dish that I pieced together from a half-remembered cooking show. The licorice flavor of the fennel works well with the shrimp and red pepper. In addition to being fast, it also reheats exceptionally well. I've always done the ingredients by eye, so all measurements should be treated as approximate. With a little planning you can do a lot of the prep and cooking in parallel. May be used as a main dish or as a side.
