“Langoustine's are similar to little mini lobster bites. Often they are bought pre-cooked but some you need to cook. Trader Joe's sells them and they are delicious! I came up with this recipe to enjoy them since very few langoustine recipes exist on the internet. You can sub shrimp in the recipe if you'd prefer.”

Directions

  1. Bring a 6- to 8-quart pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté langoustine tails, turning over once, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes, and transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl.
  3. Add garlic to oil remaining in skillet along with red pepper flakes, sherry, salt, and pepper and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Add butter to skillet, stirring until melted, then stir in tomatoes, capers and langoustines. Saute for a minute or two. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. Cook pasta in boiling water until just tender, about 3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta-cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander. Toss pasta well with shrimp mixture and parsley in large bowl, adding some of reserved cooking water if necessary to keep moist.
