I have a bag of langostinos that are fully cooked and then frozen. The question is what to do with them. I decided to recreate the dish I had oh so many years ago- langostinos with lots of garlic and olive oil served over pasta. My mouth is already watering.
Langostinos in a Garlic Butter Sauce
3 Tbsp of Butter
3 Tbsp of Olive Oil
5 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
1 Shallot, Thinly Sliced
Pinch of Salt
Couple of Turns of the Pepper Mill
12 oz. (340 g) of Langostinos, Thawed, Rinsed, and Drained
1/2 Cup (120 ml) of Dry White Wine
1/4 Cup (5 g) of Fresh Parsley
Important Note: Depending on the cooking time of your pasta: either have the water boiling and wait to add the pasta or once the water for the pasta is boiling and you are making the pasta start this recipe. Otherwise your sauce could be finished long before your pasta is cooked.
Add the butter and olive oil to a medium size saucepan. Melt the butter over medium-low heat.
|Butter melting in oil; this is not going to be a healthy dish|
