Langoustines have a delicate texture and rich taste with the perfect balance of salty and sweet. In the same family as the lobster, langoustines do look like tiny lobsters, but are far more slender and have small elongated claws. The taste is sweeter and richer than the lobster, and the texture more closely resembles a shrimp. Langoustines are in high demand by top chefs all over the world, and widely regarded as the best shellfish on the market.
- Brand may vary.
- Our langoustines are wild caught in New Zealand, and flash frozen to preserve freshness.
- Some say the name prawn should only refer to the langoustine and not to large shrimp.
- Langoustine shells are a light shade of orange, and unlike lobster shells, they don’t change color when they are cooked.
- Langoustines are also known as Dublin Bay Prawns and The Norway Lobster.
