How do you Cook Langoustine’s

Cooking langoustine is very, very simple. When your live, fresh Scottish Langoustines arrive at your door, you could put them into the freezer to chill for about 20 minutes or so which will have the effect of making them less lively and easier to handle.. Whilst your Langoustines are chilling, bring a pan of water to the boil and add a lot of salt. Online Fresh Langoustines Fresh from Billings

How do you eat Langoustines

Celebrate them in one of these tasty dishes. Eaten straight off the grill with a squeeze of lemon juice, this is arguably the best way to enjoy langoustines’ delicate flavour and delicious meatiness. Serve on a big platter and let everyone dig in.

What do you do with Langoustine Tails

Chris Otim’s Langoustine moqueca is a fantastic seafood stew recipe filled with South American flavours, or try Curtis Joseph’s Langoustine tails in feiulle de bric recipe for a stunningly presented seafood canapé. Pork and langoustines make an excellent combination for a more substantial meal.

How to Cook Langoustine with Lemon n Pepper Butter

For the lemon and pepper butter, simply mix the butter, black pepper and the lemon zest with a pinch of sea salt and set aside. Heat a grill to high. Combine the langoustines and wine or water in a pan. Bring to the boil, cover, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Online Fresh Langoustines Fresh from Billings

What Are Langoustine?

Langoustine look a bit like king prawns but are actually part of the lobster family.  Ours usually weigh around 70-80g each so you get 13-14 to a kg. This is a luxurious delicacy and are fantastic served lightly steamed whole with lemon and mayonnaise.  The tail meat has a sweet taste  and a prawn like texture, the claws just taste of heaven!  A more thoughtful and tasty choice that lobster – one of our favourite products. 

These are supplied fresh but not live.  We can supply live langoustines but please contact us in advance as they may require special ordering.  Make this the centrepiece of a special meal.  Buy Online Fresh Langoustines from N&C Produce and get free delivery directly to your door from Billingsgate market.

The Latin name being Nephrops norvegicus, Langoustine’s are also referred to as Dublin Bay Prawn, Norway Lobster or Scampi. 

Langoustine’s are often compared with a prawn; standard or king prawns however they are from the Shrimp family, Langoustine’s are not part of this group! 

Another comparison is often crayfish, whilst they are similar in appearance, Langoustine’s breed and grow in saltwater seas and oceans, whereas crayfish breed in freshwater rivers and lakes.

Where Do We Get Our Online Fresh Langoustines from N&C Produce

Our Fresh Langoustine’s are found locally in the crystal clear ‘Class A’ waters off the North-West Highland Coast of Scotland. Adult langoustine live in semi-permanent burrows, which they dig in muddy-sandy seabeds. They spend most of their time lying in these burrows or by the entrance and leave their shelter at night (or during periods of subdued light) to feed or mate. Langoustine’s feed mostly on worms, fishes and small crustaceans, which they capture with their claws and walking legs but they do not venture far and stay within 100m of their burrows.

According to the FAO 60,000 tonnes of langoustine are caught annually around the world, half of it in UK waters. Online Fresh Langoustines Fresh from Billings

Langoustine Life

Langoustine’s have a life span of 5 to 10 years and  can grow up to 25cm in length. They are an orange-pink in colour and have very long and thin claws. Adults moult once or twice a year. In Scottish waters, females are mature at 3 years of age and mating occurs in spring or early summer. 

A Quirky Fact

All langoustine’s are born male but around aged two they become female and then start to spawn in their last year, so every adult prawn you eat is a female!. Online Fresh Langoustines Fresh from Billings
