Name This Food: Langoustines

So last time on Name This Food! I asked....


What's this then. eh?

Those, my dear friends, are langoustines.

Nephrops norvegicus, known variously as the Norway lobster, Dublin Bay prawn, langoustine, langostino, or scampi, is a slim, orange-pink lobster which grows up to 25 cm (10 in) long, and is "the most important commercial crustacean in Europe". It is now the only extant species in the genus Nephrops, after several other species were moved to the closely related genus Metanephrops. It lives in the north-eastern Atlantic Ocean, and parts of the Mediterranean Sea, but is absent from the Baltic Sea and Black Sea. 

How to cook them?




So...

Recipe?

Here's an awesome one from the venerable Jamie Oliver.
