Dublin Lawyer (Shrimp in Irish Whiskey Cream Sauce)#FishFriday

Dublin Lawyer with (Shrimp in Irish Whiskey Cream Sauce) is a simple delicious seafood dish. Have peeled and washed shrimps and it's ready in minutes.
I have used the flambéing method to give additional aroma, flavor to this dish and this moderates the harshness of whiskey. I love this Irish whiskey as it leaves a sweet flavor behind. Serve this on a bed of steamed rice or porter bread. In Ireland this is served with porter bread and salad. Since porter bread is not available here I enjoyed this on a bed of steamed rice.

Serves 2

300 Grans Peeled and Washed Shrimps/Prawns
¼ Cup Salted Butter
⅓ Cup Irish whiskey - I used Bushmills
⅓ Cup Heavy Cream
Chopped Chives or Scallion Greens
Steamed Rice

In a large metal saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter.
Add shrimp and season with salt, pepper, cayenne and paprika.
Toss in butter and cook. Should take around 3-4 minutes depending on the size of your seafood. Remove seafood from pan and reserve on a plate.
Gently add whiskey to pan. Using a lighter catch whiskey on fire or tilt the pan and increase the flame to high. Once it catches fire, switch off the flame and wait till fire goes out and alcohol is burned off. This should take just a few minutes. 
Then again switch on the flame add cream and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until starts to thicken. Add seafood back into saucepan and toss to coat.
Spoon rice in bowl and top with a spoonful of seafood.
Top with a sprinkling of chopped chives or scallion greens. 
Enjoy this delicious Irish seafood dish.
