Is Ouzo good to cook with?

I have heard some people use it to cool with. Sometimes for sauces and sometimes with fish.

I suspect it would be fine. I often use a bit of pastis when I make salmon or some other sort of fish. If fennel or anise are in a dish, then a bit of ouzo should boost the flavor.

Ouzo is great with sauteed crustaceans. Tilt the pan to ignite---don't burn the house down. Use judiciously.
