Prawns Sambuca Flambe

"Flambe presentation makes any meal presentation special and dramatic. This recipe is sure to wow your guests and please their palates, as well. The recipe is from one of the finest restaurants in Monterey, California called the Sardine Factory. Dining at this wonderful restaurant on Cannery Row, one can almost feel the presence of Ernest Hemingway and other historical people who once lived and worked here."

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>I'm a recently retired San Diego trial attorney and wanna-be professional chef-restauranteur. Why am I so passionate about cooking? I don't know. What I do know is that those who don't cook are missing out on one of life's truly enjoyable experiences! I have a collection of whimsical signs posted above my workbench at home, one of which states: Love people. Cook them tasty food. How true.</p> 8727975"
