Falli similmente allessare con de finocchio et darali simelemente l'aceto per sapore.

Translation: (from The Art of Cooking: The First Modern Cookery Book)

Bay Shrimp

They also should be boiled with some fennel seed and dressed with vinegar.

My Interpretation:

1 pound Shrimp, de-veined 1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Fennel seeds 2 tablespoon White Wine Vinegar

Clean & shell shrimp. In pot of boiling water place salt, fennel seeds & shrimp. Drain shrimp. Dress with vinegar.
