I cook the yams until just tender and then slice into rounds about 1/2 inch thick and line them up overlapping in a small baking dish.
In a sauce pan I add about 1 cup brown sugar, half a stick of butter and half a cup with orange juice. I let those combine and thicken to a nice sauce, and then I stir in about 1/4 cup bourbon and orange zest.
Pour over the yams and bake at 325 for about an hour, basting periodically.
Bourbon Shrimp Pasta
This is a dish we used to serve many years ago as an appetizer and it was a popular item on our specials menu. This is the recollected preparation which was done to order.
Saute some minced shallots in a small bit of clarified butter until soft, then flame with the bourbon and deglaze the pan.
Stir in some tomato paste until smooth and then add some heavy cream and whisk until smoothand reduce over medium heat until sauce consistency.
Add julienne red bell peppers and P&D shrimp (21-25 ct) and heat until shrimp are pink.
Add a portion of heated pasta, really nice with spinach fettuccini or angel hair and toss until coated.
Season to taste with salt and white pepper.
Garnish with fresh cracked black pepper and fresh grated parm
