Kenwood shrimp. 2/26/21

This shrimp recipe comes from the now-defunct Kenwood Grill in Sonoma Wine Country. It was a lovely place to sit and have lunch and a glass of wine. The shrimp dish recipe which  they were nice enough to give us  consists of shrimp in a white wine and Pernod cream sauce served over rice with brunoise vegetables. The recipe follows the picture.
