Gambas flambéed with Pineau

Recipe: Gambas flambéed with Pineau

Recipe of prawns with Pineau des Charentes, holiday souvenir in Charente Maritime, in La Rochelle to be more precise. We love prawns at home and especially lightly flambéed. This midday I did not have time to cook and yet we were two at lunch, a friend had just arrived. Fortunately I had thawed a few prawns the day before. The time to free them, remove the casing and hop in the pan, we flambé at the end and we serve quickly.
