I know what you are thinking another Dublin dish.  It is the week leading up to the luckiest day of the year.  Plus, I am part of the Google + Hang out on Air crew that will be doing live cooking demonstrations this week and I had to come up with something with pizzaz to dazzle my viewers.  What better way than catching things on fire, or as they say in the cooking world flambé.  By rapidly burning off the alcohol, flambéing can infuse a dish with additional aroma and flavor, and moderates the harshness of raw, high-proof spirits. The flames result from the partial combustion of the flammable alcohol, which is quickly consumed, while some residual flavor remains.  The Irish whiskey leaves a sweet flavor behind.

Though I will admit I still get a queasy feeling in my belly when it comes time to light this dish on fire.  It goes against my mama telling me not to play with fire.  However, it really is not that big of a deal as long as you are careful and make sure there is nothing nearby that will help with the fire, like a dish towel or your hair, or well you get the picture.  Stand back and be careful when it comes to lighting this Dublin Lawyer on fire.  I use a long gas lighter.  You can pass this step up and just let the alcohol cook off on its own, give it 7-10 minutes if you decide to go this route before adding the cream.

The dish Dublin Lawyer is a simple and delicious classic Irish Dish ‘Dublin Lawyer’, which was named after the affluent and drunk attorneys that were around Dublin some 200 years ago.  A great dish to serve this St. Paddy’s day!
This dish is made with lobster or Langostino with a splash of whiskey, cream, butter and spices.

  1. Eating gluten free and you are not gluten intolerant really makes no sense. Eating gluten free robs your body of nutrients and minerals. Plus it is not as tasty. The Ad guys on Madison Av win again.

    It looks delicious but are you ab idiot ? GLUTEN Free Rice???? Rice is naturally gluten free!!

  3. I love this recipe, however, the heading says “dairy free” and with cream, sadly, it isn’t. Maybe I’ll try it without the cream and make it more of a scampi? Keep the fresh recipes coming!
