Pernod Shrimps on FRENCH bread

Francine ---


Every time I make it, it's a super hit..
As I flambé the shrimps, people have a ball at watching it.
This dish is served in a local restaurant and when the chef retired recently he shared this precious well kept recipe with me...
Now I have decided to share it with the WORLD...
Enjoy it as much as I do with a glass of wine, a view on the ocean accompanied with a gentle breeze that caresses your cheeks, your arms and your whole being. The symphony of the birds, the crashing ocean wave sounds and the wonderful flip of a dolphin that comes to greet you.
