New Zealand Langoustines
Langoustines are always in high demand and are widely regarded by chefs as one of the top shellfish species available on the market.
Renowned for their delicate texture and flavor, they look very similar to the American lobster. The big differences are that they are much smaller, have more slender bodies and have elongated narrow pincers instead of wide claws.
Grilling and poaching are the most popular cooking methods, however, they are also well suited for a court bouillon or other types of soup. We like them split open and placed on the grill.
Available as a 4.4 Lbs Boxe. 5-7 Per Pound. Wild Caught. New Zealand.
