I used this spice along with fennel seeds as a shrimp boil. I only needed one because it is pungent.
Then I added salt and lemon juce and half a lemon to the water.
The shrimp were excellent!
Does anyone know what the English term is for the start shaped spice?

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

The star-shaped spice is called star anise that is commonly used in China to add flavor to a variety of dishes.

Thank you!
I looked it up after you told me what it was.
Fortunately it is unrelated to regular anise which it used in licorice which I can't stand.
My shrimp didn't have a hint of licorice flavor, thank God.

If you make a soup using aquatics/ seafood especially from freshwater bodies i.e. rivers & lakes farming cut one or two thin slices raw Ginger and let it cook together as soon you introduce the fish/ shrimp and others until the soup dish is ready for serving than remove it again. It does remove typical fishy flavor and odors. Thus enhances the taste and the texture of the meat becomes a bigger part of the overall taste. Good luck.
