Absinthe is one of the hottest drinks on the market, mainly because it was illegal for so long due to its perceived hallucinogenic properties. A tamer, legal version has been back on the North American market for a while now, but so far it's only been served as a drink.

Steve Wallin, the chef at Yankee Pier, combines 18 ingredients in this dish, but the secret to its wild popularity is without a doubt the anise-flavoured liquor.
