The Basics

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. After 20 minutes have past take your langoustines from the freezer and put them in the boiling water. For the small and medium sizes just bring the langoustine back to the boil and that will be them cooked. ¬†For the large and extra large sizes, you could keep them boiling for 1-2 minutes.. Before you place the prawns into the boiling water, you might want to know how to handle live langoustine. Once your langoustines are cooked, simply drain them in a colander. Peel off the shell, and enjoy the simply fine taste of the freshest possible langoustine. Below we’ve made a little demo video to show you the basics in action.

Once you have prepared your live langoustine, they can be eaten as they or combined with one of our recipes or one of your own.. After cooking langoustine they can be kept in the refrigerator for about 1 to 2 days, no longer.
