Aragosta al Forno (Roasted Langoustine)

(Made last Christmas)

Heat oven to 180C and grease a roasting pan

  1. For starter take 200 grams uncooked langoustine (500 gr for main), shell, cut along the tail, clean out the black stuff and flatten out;
  2. 4 tbsp olive oil;
  3. Salt and freashly ground black pepper;
  4. Juice of 2 - 3 lemons
  5. 2 tbsp dried white breadcrumbs
  6. 2 tbsp chopped fresh flat leave parsley

Distribute the langoustine evenly around the roasting pan back side up. Try to leave some space around each langoustine so that they roast rather than boil. Sprinkle with 1/2 the lemon juice, 1/2 the olive oil, the breadcrumbs, parsley, salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 15 min and then allow 5 min to cool before serving.

Whisk the remaining lemon juice and oil together with salt and pepper and serve as dip.
