Langoustine or scampi is a species of lobster found in the North Atlantic but also the Mediterranean Sea. It’s one of the finest food you’ll treat yourself with when dining in Iceland and lucky for me and my family, my in-laws decided to treat us to these beauties last Saturday.
The langoustine showed here is on the BBQ, bathing in melted butter with a lot of garlic and fresh parsley. We then had bread, more of that delicious butter and green salad with it. Make sure not to overcook it! When the meat turns white, the lobster is cooked.
I believe I stole this combination from Eldsmiðjan pizzeria in Reykjavík, Iceland, many years ago. However, they don’t seem to have it on their menu anymore – silly them.
Again, so simple, yet the results are sandwiches several classes higher than a normal cheese and ham sandwich for example.
I decided to add a facebook page to this. Because, you know, what’s not on facebook?

Green Pesto Chicken with Lime
So incredibly simple! …not very Nordic though but more southern Europe inspired…
