Langoustine Shells 1kg



These are the heads and shells of Scottish langoustines or Scampi. The shells are picked over to clean them of any flesh that may be left behind and then they are laid out to dry in a cool room. These langoustine shells can also be ground up and used as a stock powder for any seafood recipe – not so much for the flavour but the colour. These shells are absolutely great for adding texture and glossiness when coating fish in flour or tempura. They’re best used straight from the freezer and add a lovely crunchy finish to whatever they’re being used on.
