Dinner tonight

I found a source for whole Langostines. I made them in a Brandy and cream sauce. Man were they good. Lemon rice on the side. For some reason pics are backwards, starting from bottom to top preparation to plate.









When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Dinner tonight

They are much sweeter than lobster, they are in the hermit crab family so they taste more like a blue crab than lobster. They come from cold water in Europe and S. America. Those babies came from Scotland, they are supposed to be the best but I don't know because it is the frst time I made them. I will make them again.

Re: Dinner tonight

Looks good. Langoustines are great. I could sit all day and eat seafood.....I should have been born in Maine. The lobsters wouldn't make it off the boat before I'd eat them.....I'd be one fat happy broke Lobster man,,,,

I've also seen the northern atlantic ones referred to as "Dublin Bay Prawns" and they are of higher quality than the others. Looks nice. Where did you source out these from? You don't see them at the local stores that often.

edited to add: I also use E&J brandy to cook with at work

Re: Dinner tonight

Actually I have been looking for whole ones for months, finally found a source here. I had them shipped Fex ex ground and I ordered them Tuesday night and had them Thursday morning still frozen. http://scottishgourmetusa.gourmetfoo...?product=12556

Re: Dinner tonight

John; if you ever need any help sourcing out exotic seafood let me know. Here's a link to my wholesale vendor in Philly; I get fresh fish several times a week at work. I also have a small mom & pop fishmonger out of Baltimore. I've been buying seafood from these guys for over 15 yrs and have great confidence in what they send me. When I used to work in Center city Philadelphia I'd go down to the market with a pushcart and a wad of cash to buy from the "gumba's" every morning. Even though I'm out here now I still talk to the same guys on the phone weekly. I'm located in downtown Lancaster and would be happy to have something dropped off here for you or possibly split a case of something I can use at the restaurant. I'm sure my wholesale price would be much better than retail. I enjoy reading your cooking threads; it seems you enjoy playing around in the kitchen as well.

Re: Dinner tonight

Thanks a bunch for the thread. I wish they would include prices but it looks like a great supplier. I paid $48.00 for 2lb of langostines and 8.50 shipping. I do enjoy cooking, it relaxes me. What resturant are you a chef at in Lanc.? I may take you up on your offer sometime. Thanks again.
