Grilled langoustines


As many langoustines as you can eat or alternatively what your largest tray can hold (usually around 10 live langoustines, halved)
200g unsalted butter
10g crushed garlic
10g of chopped parsley
10g of shallots diced finely
3 limes cut in half
Sea salt


1. Place the butter, garlic, shallots and parsley into a sauce pan and gently heat to allow the butter to melt and ingredients to mix together.

2. Place the langoustines and lime halves on a roasting tray, pour the melted butter all over shellfish to coat evenly.

3. Place under a hot grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, the langoustine should be a creamy white colour when done.

4. Serve on a large heated platter, pour over all of the melted butter that’s left on the tray; squeeze the lime juice over the shellfish while the limes are still hot, sprinkle with a little sea salt.
