Langoustine's are similar to little mini lobster bites. Often they are bought pre-cooked but some you need to cook. Trader Joe's sells them and they are delicious! I came up with this recipe to enjoy them since very few langoustine recipes exist on the internet. You can sub shrimp in the recipe if you'd prefer.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Bring a 6- to 8-quart pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté langoustine tails, turning over once, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes, and transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl.
  3. Add garlic to oil remaining in skillet along with red pepper flakes, sherry, salt, and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Add butter to skillet, stirring until melted, then stir in tomatoes, capers and langoustines. Saute for a minute or two. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. Cook pasta in boiling water until just tender, about 3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta-cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander. Toss pasta well with shrimp mixture and parsley in large bowl, adding some of reserved cooking water if necessary to keep moist.
