Oranges Donna

Well, OK, I was showing off for a friend's birthday, but I backed it up solid -- I had been thinking about this for a while. It's based on cherries jubilee, but with oranges instead of cherries, a smoky Islay single malt instead of brandy, and chocolate. Again, how can you go wrong?

Anyway, oranges Donna:
slice orange into sections, peel on, but cut away white pith
sear orange sections on hot cast iron
put on oven safe plate, cover with chocolate and dot with butter
broil until chocolate melts and starts to just burn

cover with reduction of orange juice, orange peel, and a smoky single malt scotch. serve flambe, like cherries jubilee. No lie.

This was wicked good.. by the time I thought to get the camera, there were only two left.
