Flaming Ouzo Shrimp
Write a review
  1. 1 1/4 pounds SEAMAZZ® easy peel U-15 shrimp, thawed
  2. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  3. 1 russet potato, very thinly sliced
  4. 1 jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced
  5. 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  6. Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  7. 6 ounces ouzo
  8. 1/2 lemon
  9. Crusty bread, for serving
  1. Preheat oven to 500°F.
  2. Heat a large skillet in the oven for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and add ¼ cup olive oil. Carefully layer potato slices in the pan, slightly overlapping them. Top with sliced jalapeño, garlic and finally the shrimp. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. Return the pan to the oven and bake until the shrimp are opaque throughout, 5-7 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and add ouzo. Stand back and carefully hold a lit match to the juices to flame the dish. As the flame begins to die down, squeeze the lemon over the shrimp. Serve immediately with crusty bread to mop up the juices.
Great Tip
  1. Make sure that the ouzo goes on while the dish is very hot, or it will not light. And remember to stand back when flaming the shrimp.
  1. Makes 6 appetizer servings or 4 entrée servings.
