i loved the flames, though i couldn't taste any traces of tequila afterwards. but all in all a decent shrimp recipe.
Probably the quality of your tequila.
My husband made this recipe. I don't know what went wrong, but the sauce was horrible -- just bitter and yucky.
This was a good, solid dish, but it gets extra points for "flare". It's pretty fun setting your dinner on fire, although I admit the flames were a bit larger and long-lasting than I had expected! The flavors work well, but I was surprised that it didn't taste spicy at all -- perhaps I got some mild jalapenos this time. We'll enjoy it more if we can achieve spiciness in the future.
