If you can’t find langoustines, large shell-on shrimp work well, too.
Icelandic Sautéed Langoustines
This recipe, inspired by the mind-blowing langoustines GP had in Iceland, is perfect weeknight or dinner party food. Serve them straight out of the pot or transfer to a serving dish—just be sure to reserve all the delicious cooking liquid to eat with bread.
3 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds shell-on langoustine tails (or you could use shell-on jumbo shrimp)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat.
2. Add the butter, garlic, and langoustines and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant and the langoustines are just cooked through.
3. Remove from the heat and top with chopped parsley and lemon wedges for serving.
