Flaming Garlic and Whisky Gambas! (King Prawns - Giant Shrimp)

13 mins (prep 5, cooking 8)
9 ingredients
3-4 servings
French, Spanish and Scottish fusion cooking at its best! Take large gambas (king prawns or giant shrimp) and sauté them in garlic butter.....then add a generous slug of Scotch whisky - set them alight - flambé them for a minute or so...........serve them hot with crusty bread to mop up all the sinful garlic butter and whisky juices - maybe with a salad of mixed baby leaves! Sublime...........divine decadence on a platter! I like these - can you tell??! Allow 2 to 3 per person for a starter and about 4 to 5 per person for a main course, when served with accompaniments. Tactile eating - so provide plenty of napkins or finger bowls!
