Kayelle, I grew up on the left coast. We vacationed at Lake Tahoe. My parents met some other Swedes. They had caught a bunch of crayfish in Lake Tahoe and they shared with us. They were served, Swedish style, like small lobsters with melted butter for dipping. Yum.

I realize this is kind of an old post, but...

One of the very first dishes I ever cooked for my current wife when we were first dating was baked pasta shells with crawfish and a gruyere cream sauce. Elegant, unusual, and tasty. Don't let naysayers ever tell you that cheese and fish don't go together. It was awesome, and the woman ended up marrying me. So there!

Crawfish Pie! Just Google "Crawfish Pie Recipes". There are quite a few recipes. I'd go for one with 5 stars.

Since these are already cooked, I would find a way to heat them without cooking them anymore.

We make a rustic pizza that uses precooked crawfish tails. They have to be spicy from a boil and good soak to taste right. If you buy frozen tails, make sure they come from Breaux Bridge, LA. The crap that comes from Asia is just sickening and stinks right out of the package.

For extra zing, sprinkle some Tony C's creole seasoning on before use.

Sometimes at Costco they have Langastinos at a very reasonable cost.
I bought a big bag once, cooked and cleaned ready to go.

Get home and cannot think of any way to prepare them. I think I ended up lightly tossing in hot EVOO and fresh garlic and adding a cup or so of marinara.
Then over some linguine.

I was not impressed. Probably would not buy them again unless I had a solid plan.

I have only had langoustines in restaurants - butterflied and broiled or grilled and cover in garlic butter.

Funny, I always thought langostinos and crawfish were the same, the names used interchangeably. I need to research out of curiousity, as I think I'm very wrong.

Well, they both look a bit like little lobsters. ;)

Your confusion is understandable. This is a clip from Wiki. "In Spain, it means some species of prawns. In Cuba and other Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands, the name langostino is also used to refer to crayfish."

Langostino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I guess we can conclude it's some kind of small crab/lobster/crustacean.
