Langostino is Spanish word which refer to the meat of the squat lobster. It is neither a true lobster nor a prawn. Flip loves Langostino Tails very much, he usually buy many packs of the frozen one from Trader Joe’s and keep it handy to defroze and eat it with Butter Dipping as snack. I am temped to try cooking Langostino Tails. The easy way is to treat and cook it as you do with Shrimp.
In the skillet, heat Butter and Olive Oil then add a lot of chopped Garlic. Add Langostino Tails and White wine and any kind of boiled Pasta or Egg Noodle that you like into the pan. The trick is when you boil Pasta, make sure you minus 2 minutes from the cooking time recommended on the package. The Pasta should be a little bit under cooked when you add into the pan. I add more of White Wine and let the Pasta cook with the Wine in the pan for a few minutes.
Season with Salt, a lot of ground Black Pepper and fresh or dried Parsley. Serve Al Dente, the pasta will be a bit chewy which goes very well with the Langostino Tails.
Be creative with your cooking. I add Spinash or sometimes Scallion with a different kind of Pasta. What we like most are Ear Pasta and Bow Tie Pasta with lots of Garlic and plenty of Langostino Tails. Cheers!!
