Langoustines are a luxury here; for me, they are a summer treat. They are not cooked in any fancy way, just grilled or baked for about 8 minutes, but there have to be lots and they have to be served as simply as possible. That is the true Scandinavian seafood tradition. Langoustines are more or less available all year around, but the high season is July and August. They are plentiful on islands like Læsø and Anholt, which is a treasured summer destination in Denmark.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60-70 fresh langoustines
1 whole head of garlic, cloves separated, peeled and chopped
2 lemon, sliced
4-5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the lemon mayo

Quantity Ingredient
300ml Mayonnaise
3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest, finely grated

For the chilli cream

Quantity Ingredient
200ml Mayonnaise
100ml full-fat creme fraiche
1 red chilli, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely grated

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
lemon wedges
lime wedges
1 loaf * sourdough bread, sliced

Method

  1. For the lemon mayo, mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Mix the chilli cream ingredients together, with salt and pepper to taste, in a separate small bowl. Set both aside in the fridge until ready to serve.
  2. Place the langoustines in a large bowl and mix in the garlic and lemon slices. Drizzle with the oil, mix and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat the barbecue (grill) and barbecue the langoustines for 8–12 minutes, depending on size, turning them regularly. Serve right away, with the lemon mayo, chilli cream, lemon and lime wedges, and bread.
