Crevettes Flambées au Rhum or Rum Flambéed Shrimp. OMG! I know I have been somewhat neglecting my posts, but there are several good excuses that I do not want to bother you with. Yesterday, a friend (Frero) called me to find out what was happening.

Frero was referring to the type of dishes I was posting. Although the dishes were interesting to some of my readers on Facebook, to him, they were not. It is not a good thing when a friend can tell something is wrong just by looking at your food posts. LOL! So I promised him that I would post my Crevettes Flambés au Rhum or Rum Flambéed Shrimp so that he could virtually eat them and be satisfied. LOL

Flambé is not a technique I often use. The reason is simply that I do not cook or bake many flambéed dishes. The recipe, Crevettes Flambés au Rhum or Rum Flambéed Shrimp, is a quick and easy dish to make for dinner. The primary spice used for the shrimp dish is Curry Powder. Curry Powder is a spice that is particularly special to this dish, and that is where the beautiful golden color comes from.

The shrimp is marinated with Wow! So much to learn about Curry! I have always had difficulties finding the right Curry powder, meaning the right spice mixture. 

I always ensure that my shopping list includes curry powder because many meals include this wonderful spice. There are many types of blends on the market, and for some reason or another, many are not quite tasty or do not give the food the flavor that it is supposed. Just remember that when you find a good brand, stick with it.

So this beautiful dish is made with shrimp. It could also be done with lobster meat or crayfish. Whichever seafood variety you prefer to use.

This recipe is perfect with Fried Plantains or Rice with Green Peas.

Hope you enjoy Crevettes Flambés au Rhum or Rum Flambéed!
