What is Langoustine?
We are going back to basics this week with a blog on our beloved Scottish langoustine. Settle in, this won’t take LANG!
While it may seem obvious to seafood fans, our folks on the coasts who have easy access to this delicious shellfish delicacy, we also get asked lots of questions about our luxurious langoustine products. They truly are an eating experience that is hard to beat.
Did you know...
What is a langoustine?
What do langoustine taste like?
The tail meat has a succulent sweet taste and a firm, meaty texture.
Are Langoustine good for you?
The short answer is, YES! Like most seafood, langoustine are rich in Omega-3, selenium, iodine, Vitamin B12 and more – essential nutrients for your diet.
They are also low in fat, and high in protein, making them a delicious and healthy choice.
What do langoustine grades mean?
A higher grade will have more individual langoustines per pack and lower grades will have less pieces but they will be bigger!
For exampe, 14/17 grade means there will be approx 14-17 pieces per pack, whereas a 20/25 pack will have (you guessed it) approx 20-25 individual langoustine for that same weight.
When it comes to the sizes we offer Gourmet, then Jumbo and now – when available – SUPREME langoustines. These are our largest yet!
