Marinated Shrimp Salad

Photo: Quentin Bacon; Styling: Anghard Bailey

Offer this garlicky salad as a main-dish option, or set it out for a starter snack. You can reserve some of the feathery fennel fronds for a pretty garnish. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp--you want them just barely done so they won't become tough as they marinate.
