Langoustines with Fennel and Lobster Consommé
- 20 langoustines
- 1 3/4 ounces long pepper (50 g)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (3 cl)
- 4 baby fennel
- 2 scallions
- 1 bunch opal basil
- 4 fresh lemons
- 1 lump sugar
Step 1: Langoustines
Separate the heads and tails of the langoustines; reserve the heads for the consommé. Shell the tails, leaving the last two rings of shell attached.
Crush the long pepper in a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, then bread the langoustines in the pepper. Pan-roast the langoustines in a drizzle of olive oil just before serving.
Step 2: Candied Lemons
Cut away the rind of 1 lemon and julienne the rind. Juice all 4 lemons. Blanch the lemon rind in boiling water, then drain and cool.
Heat the sugar and lemon juice on the stovetop. Add the lemon rind and cook until translucent. Set aside.
