Langostinos are the meat of a Squat Lobster, which closely matches the flavor of a shrimp and a lobster, despite not being a shrimp nor a lobster. The meat is sweet and elegant, with a more delicate flavor than lobster or crab.
Cooking Tips & Recipes
Langostinos can be used in place of lobster meat, but don’t expect them to match in flavor perfectly. They can be a good option for dishes like lobster mac and cheese, but we would not recommend them for lobster rolls. Alternatively, they are excellent when enjoyed as what they are: a high quality, bite-sized shellfish. Try them served in a lemon garlic butter sauce!
