Bring 4 quarts water to a boil in large Dutch oven or stockpot. Heat 12-inch heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat for 4 minutes. Toss shrimp with half of red pepper flakes, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and ¾ teaspoon salt. Add shrimp to hot skillet and quickly arrange in single layer. Sear until bottom of shrimp forms small spot of crust, about 30 seconds.Remove skillet from heat, turn shrimp over. Add cognac; pause until cognac has warmed slightly, about 5 seconds. Return to high heat. Wave lit match over pan until cognac ignites, shaking pan. Remove shrimp to medium bowl and set aside.
