Crawfish Bourbon Orleans Preparation

I tasted this dish in a hotel in New Orleans that is now under new management. The chef gave out the recipe and I was very taken by it. You have got to love this one! Reduce the stock to 1 tablespoon. In large frying pan, saut‚ the shallots and garlic in 2 tablespoons of butter until clear. Add the crawfish, reduced stock, wine, bourbon, and salt and pepper. Flame, or light with a match, being very careful that there are no children around . . . or nice guests for that matter. Add the cream and reduce the sauce for 3 to 4 minutes. Finish the sauce by swirling in the final tablespoon of butter. We are talking rich here! Serve over cooked pasta or rice, along with a green salad and Peas with Salt Pork (see recipe).
