Even in the brisk middle of winter, this dish makes you feel like you’re on summer vacation with its combination of succulent shrimp tossed in a zesty sauce and bright fennel sautéed to tenderness. On its own, fennel has an anise-like taste, similar to licorice, that adds an interesting layer of flavor to the tacos. Cilantro and a spritz of lime crank up the zing factor even more, giving both the tacos and the salad a twist of flavor.
