  1. There is a greek sauce made from tomatoes and ouzo that is pretty tastey. I have had it served with Salmon, but have never made it. I bet if you google it though you can find something.

    1. There is a nice recipe for fresh squeezed orange juice & sambuca sorbet, but I bet ouzo would taste good in it instead. It's in Silver Palate Good Times.

      1. I poach scallops in Pernod. You could sub ouzo for that.

        1. As others have mentioned: seafood. Mild-flavored fish or shellfish are great when poached in pastis and water. Pastis also makes a welcome addition to soups and sauces containing tomatoes and seafood, or tomato sauces meant for seafood. Putting ouzo in bouillabase might cause a Real Marseillais to freak out, but other than that it would be a fine substitution.

          1. This wouldn't use it all up, but it's a good sub for extracts in Greek cookies or pastries.
