Flaming Shrimp

1 pound cleaned, de-veined shrimp, with
tail shells left on
1/4 pound butter
1 tablespoon parsley
1 fresh lemon, sliced very thin
Fresh coarsely-ground pepper
1/4 cup rum
3 cloves garlic, minced

Melt butter in a saucepan, chafing dish or electric skillet, depending on whether to be cooked at the table or on the stove.

Add garlic to butter and sauté slightly to extract some of the garlic flavor.

Add parsley.

Add rum and bring mixture up to a slow simmer.

Drop well drained shrimp, preferably at room temperature, into the mixture and cook fairly rapidly.

The best way to judge when the shrimp is cooked is when the tail shell becomes bright red and the shrimp curl into a "C" and are quite firm. This usually takes about 4 to 5 minutes.

At this point, quickly stir in the lemon slices, and season to taste with coarsely ground pepper. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup 180 proof rum and ignite for presentation.
