They have frozen langoustine at Trader Joes, but that might be better suited for sauteeing over grilling…

Chilean langostino are not langoustines.

Check with Joon at Pacific Fresh Fish in DTLA.

Years ago, I got the frozen langoustines from TJ’s and used them to make this pasta. It was AWESOME!

Since then I have also used fresh cooked shrimp - and that has worked as well.

Happy cooking to you!

Highly recommend the place!

Not at all. I am sure they will tell you over the phone. Wonderful
store. Great scallops from Hokkaido.
