This week we've selected langoustine, also known as Norway lobsters or Dublin Bay prawns. The pale orange-pink crustaceans are similar to lobsters, just a lot smaller. Some say they're the basketball players of the seafood world, all legs and arms.
Prized for their sweet, lobster-like flesh, they're the small seafood with big potential, appearing on many Michelin-starred menus around the world.
See what can be done with this succulent seafood in the hands of three-Michelin-starred chefs, from Switzerland's Peter Knogl to Belgium's Peter Goossens.
