Chilean Langostino Tails Recipe

I know what you are asking. What is a Chilean Langostino Tail? These succulent langostino tails are caught off the Chilean coastline, and are available all year. The flavor of langostino tails is sweet, lobster-like and with a delicate texture. They are a delicious substitute in recipes that call for Lobster or Shrimp. Langostinos can be seasoned and use in an infinite variety of preparations such as bisques, sandwiches, pastas, seafood salads, party platters, ceviche or langostino cocktails. I decided to try them in a Pasta with Garlic Butter Sauce. I used a recipe from Food Wonk as a guide.

Start with 12 oz. of Langostinos, Thawed, Rinsed, and Drained.

Prepare 5 Cloves of  Chopped Garlic, 1 Thinly Sliced Shallot and 1/4 Cup of Fresh Parsley.

Add the butter and olive oil to a medium size saucepan. Melt the butter over medium-low heat.

Add the garlic, shallot, and salt and pepper. Sauté until the shallot is translucent.

Add the langostinos and the wine and cook until heated through about 3 minutes. Do not overcook the langostinos they will turn rubbery. Then add parsley.

Here is the final dish topped over linguine.

Langostinos in a Garlic Butter Sauce
3 Tbsp of Butter
3 Tbsp of Olive Oil
5 Cloves of Chopped Garlic
1 Shallot, Thinly Sliced
Pinch of Salt
Couple of Turns of the Pepper Mill
12 oz. of Langostinos, Thawed, Rinsed, and Drained
1/2 Cup of Dry White Wine
1/4 Cup of Fresh Parsley

We found the Langostino Tails quite delicious. They have a very delicate and mild flavor. The texture is very similar to lobster. I see how they can be easily substituted for any recipe that calls for either shrimp or lobster. Why not try some in your next seafood dish? When buying langostino tails online, make Anderson Seafoods your first and last source. These delicious langostino tails from Anderson Seafoods are fully cooked, peeled and ready to eat.
