Despite our langoustines not being live, they retain their freshness for 5-6 days from when they are caught. They are packed with ice and kept refrigerated which retains their quality. We recommend keeping them on ice and in their packaging until you plan to cook them. Once langoustines have been cooked, they can be kept for 2-3 days refrigerated.

Firstly, the simple theory of supply and demand means that strict langoustine fishing quotas are constantly challenged by the popularity of langoustines for the table in Spain, France and other European countries.

*Bring a large pan of water to a boil with a tablespoon of salt. Add the langoustines and cover with a lid. By the time the water gets back to a boil the langoustines will be cooked. Remove the langoustines and let them cool at room temperature.

Did you know that the biggest markets for langoustines are France and Spain where they are known as "cigalas"? Harvesting langoustines is done in a similar way to harvesting lobsters, using pots or creels that are laid on the seabed, where the langoustines scavenge for worms and small fish. Hauling up lobster pots can be a grueling task, particularly when it takes place in the unforgiving and cold waters of the North Sea.

The langoustine is a big prawn with an extra fine taste. It's also known as the Dublin Bay Prawn or the Norway Lobster, and in its most popular role, as scampi - that's what we call the meat in the tail once it has been peeled. If you are looking for the peeled and cleaned version of these, peeled scampi can be found here. But the langoustine is a very beautiful fish and deserves to be admired before it's eaten. These Scottish langoustines are raw, we source ours from a supplier up in Aberdeen. For their journey, they are packed in a box with a layer of water frozen around the langoustine. This is done intentionally to protect the fragile little creatures from rattling around in the box and breaking. If you don't want to use them all at once, you can run under cold water until they wiggle away, wrap up the portion you want to save and pop into the freezer. All packs are 700g each, choosing between S-XL size refers to the actual size of the langoustine. Increase the size to XL and you will receive fewer pieces, but some very large juicy langoustines

Norwegian Scampi (nephrops norvegicus), also known as langoustines, are slender, pale, pinkish-orange lobster-lookalikes that enjoy distinction among crustacean shellfish for their just-right size between prawns and lobsters. Beyond this, they are also superbly sweet, delicate, and crisp, with plump meat that takes on an almost pastry-like airiness when properly prepared. These XXL selections represent the largest of the langoustines, delivering these exceptional characteristics in ample supply.

Though certainly versatile to prepare, we often look to Spanish and Portuguese recipes for inspiration, where langoustines have been popular since long before their latest wave of acclaim among high-end restaurants throughout Europe and the US.

Forget foie. Forget caviar. Langoustines are the new marker of haute cuisine. Slim, pinkish-orange, and built like a basketball player (all arms and legs), Nephrops norvegicus is a shrimpy-looking crustacean in the lobster family. Its body can grow up to ten inches long, but it's basically just the delicious tail meat that has chefs from Copenhagen to Vegas in a full-on frenzy."Nothing highlights the elegance and bounty of the sea better than langoustines," waxes Esben Holmboe Bang, chef of Maaemo in Oslo. "They have a more complex and delicate taste than lobster. The flavor is sweet, elegant. Lobster is rustic by comparison."

Langoustines are extremely perishable, which means if you see one on your plate, it was likely overnighted live from some remote, inhospitable place. Why live? Because as soon as langoustines die, their delicate flesh begins to "autoconsume," turning black, mealy, and disgusting. Getting them from point to point still wriggling is an insane (and very expensive) logistical feat. The most-coveted ones are hand-harvested from traps set in the icy coastal waters of the northeastern Atlantic Ocean. The little buggers then have to be shipped in individual "apartments," because just looking at other langoustines stresses them out, which could compromise the quality of their meat.

If you can't find a source for live langoustines where you live (and, frankly, you probably can't; we had a hard enough time finding them in New York City), don't despair. You can buy individual north Atlantic langoustines from Scottish Gourmet USA ($64 + shipping for a 2-lb. box). Thaw the langoustines under cold running water for ten minutes, then toss them in boiling water for a minute or two for the most decadent seafood cocktail your guests have ever seen.

Also known as Norway lobsters or Dublin Bay prawns, langoustines are pale orange-pink crustaceans, similar to lobsters but a lot smaller. While years ago they were tossed in breadcrumbs and served up with chips as scampi, in recent years they have garnered a foodie fanbase for their sweet, lobster-like flesh, and appear regularly on fine dining menus across the country.

The most basic method for cooking langoustines is to simply boil them up and peel at the table. No matter how you cook them, place them in the freezer for 30 minutes or so to stun them before cooking.

The cooking of langoustines can be as simple, or tricky, as you want, depending on the desired result. Placing the langoustines straight on a hot barbecue (cut in half lengthways, cut-side up) and cooking for a couple of minutes is a summertime winner, giving the shellfish a slightly smoky finish.

Langoustines are an extremely exclusive and pricey dish that resembles a hybrid between a crayfish and a lobster. Despite the high price, langoustines have traditionally been quite popular in Europe. Scampi is the name given to them in Italy. They were extremely rare sightings in the United States up until quite recently.

Crayfish and langoustines share a similar outward appearance; however, langoustines are native to saltwater environments, whereas crayfish prefer to live in freshwater environments such as rivers and lakes to reproduce.

Through the transparent membrane that covers the meat on the underside of the tail, it is possible to see that there is meat there. If it has gone from a light pink tint to an unmistakable white color, then you can be sure that the langoustines have been cooked thoroughly.

The box arrived that night, and Bartolotta went through all the steps the man had prescribed. He opened it slowly to introduce ambient air at a controlled rate so as not to the rattle the fragile, slumbering langoustines with the kind of quick shift in temperature that would surely kill them. He cut off the bottom foam wall of the box. Carefully he peeled back the layers and layers of insulation. He removed several gel packs, pulling each out with surgical precision. He reminded all the cooks circled around him that these were incredibly sensitive creatures. He held his breath. 041b061a72
