Langoustine (Norway Lobster)
4 packs, approximately 3.3 lbs. each, 6-8 langoustines per lb. (about 13 lbs.)
Langoustines (aka Nephrops norvegicus) are a delicious species of cold-water prawn, sometimes called scampi. Langoustines look like crawfish, but they are a smaller relative of the lobster, and equally prized for their sweet tail meat.
Store frozen packs in your freezer until you’re ready to use them, then thaw only as much as you plan on cooking.
RECIPES & TIPS
Whole langoustines may be boiled in heavily salted water for 3-4 minutes. Serve them with a side of aioli for dipping. To grill or broil langoustines, split them in half lengthwise and brush with butter. Langoustines can also be used for paella.
