Wanna set your food on fire?? Here’s your chance with Spicy Grilled Vodka Shrimp. It’s so much fun to cook and share. These shrimp are spicy but not extreme, just a perfect spicy bite really. They get a little heat not only from the chili flakes, but jalapeño and spicy vodka if you have it. Add a good squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of cilantro for a great nibble.
Outdoors is definitely the preferred location to perform this act of pyromania. An ounce of vodka will shoot flames 2-3 feet high, seriously!! And, the look on your guest’s faces will be priceless. The flame will dissipate within about 20-30 seconds, so be ready for it, it happens quickly.
I have done this particular flambé outside before, however for this post and for the purpose of taking pictures I used my garage which has high ceilings and a large open area. It’s really not a maneuver I would ever do in my home. Too much potential for bad things to happen in my opinion, so I’ll keep this outdoors, and I strongly suggest you do as well. Besides, that is where your shrimp and hot pan will be coming off the BBQ anyway. Have fun with it and enjoy!
