The langoustine is an edible crustacean. The word is French and translates to "prawn". These prawns require a very short cooking time, about 5 minutes. If you overcook them they will become rubbery.
Purchase lagoustine (prawns) at fish markets. Whole Foods stores stock them seasonally. If you are in the UK you can buy langoustine online at Martin's Seafresh.
