Large langoustines

Large langoustines

Go to Coll. Moor in the Arinagour sound, as close as possible from the jetty (less swell and less rowing, please don’t use the engine on your tender…) Have a walk on this beautiful island. Get fresh bread. Get back to your boat and start boiling a large quantity of sea water. By 3 pm if the sea is rough, and by 4 pm if the sea is fair, look for a blue fishing boat. When it’s heading for the jetty, call him and ask for large size langoustine (they are the biggest we have ever see…). Plunge them into boiling water (yes, it’s the tough part of it, especially for them…). Count 2 minutes when water boils again. Remove from water and let cool for half an hour. It’s time for drinks. Then eat with bread and butter with salt, and a bottle of muscadet, while looking at the sunset over the mooring.

There is no restaurant in the world that can serve you a better meal.
