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.

One of the best recipes for shrimp! Great for company as well, guests can be in the kitchen while you cook and it is really impressive to see the flambe. I have given out this recipe many many times. Also good for week night meals -- quick and easy!
