How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Boil snap peas until bright green (15 to 20 seconds), then drain. Rinse with cold water and add to ice water.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in another large saucepan, combine 1/4 cup liqueur, 1 tbsp. salt, the bay leaves, and 1 qt. water. Squeeze juice from lemon halves into pan and add halves as well. Bring to a boil, stir in shrimp, and remove from heat. Let stand until shrimp are cooked through, about 3 minutes. Drain, rinse shrimp with cold water, and add to ice water with peas. Let stand until cold, then drain peas and shrimp well.

Step 3

Whisk remaining 1 1/2 tsp. liqueur, 3 tbsp. lemon juice, the oil, mayonnaise, remaining 3/4 tsp. salt, and the pepper in a large bowl. Add peas, shrimp, chervil, radishes, and fennel, tossing to coat.

Step 4

Serve with lettuce for people to use as a base for their salads if they like.

Step 5

*If you can't find chervil, use equal parts fresh tarragon and flat-leaf parsley.
