Scampi

A prawn in a class of its own...

Dublin Bay prawn, Norway lobster, langoustine - this little beastie has an impressive battery of names. It’s a small lobster with the charming characteristic of being a beautiful pink in real life (most other prawns are normally grey and only turn pink when cooked). Once peeled, the meaty tail is known as scampi. Normally it’s generously swathed in breadcrumbs but our h-u-g-e peeled scampi have no equal. But you don't HAVE to have it peeled. Served still in its shell, a langoustine is a thing of beauty and extracting the meat is a lot of fun. Here, we also sell crayfish - a different kind of small lobster.
