The Norwegian lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) is a lobster that can grow to 10 till 30 centimeters. A langoustine is orange on top and sides and white on the bottom. They are relatively long and slim compared to other lobster species. The meat of the langoustine is lean and has a refined slightly sweet taste.
It’s also known as the Dublin Bay Prawn or the Norway Lobster and it’s most popular role, as scampi, that is: what we call the meat in the tail once it has been peeled. But the langoustine is a very beautiful fish and deserves to be admired before it’s eaten.
These Scottish langoustines are raw, we source ours from a supplier up in Aberdeen. For their journey, they are packed in a box with a layer of water frozen around the langoustine. This is done intentionally to protect the fragile little creatures from rattling around in the box and breaking. If you don’t want to use them all at once, you can run under cold water until they wiggle away, wrap up the portion you want to save and pop into the freezer.

HARVESTING & FISHING TECHNIQUE
Langoustine is wild-caught from the cold, clear waters of the North Atlantic, coming from a well-managed and healthy fishery.
Langoustine is the most valuable shellfish landed in Scotland and over one third of total world landings are made here. Langoustine is fished by trawlers, using a method known as bottom trawling, with smaller boats operating inshore and larger boats operating in mixed fisheries offshore. A small volume of langoustine, predominantly off the West coast of Scotland, are caught by creel. Frozen langoustine wholesale
