Meal Plan

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of shrimp but on the other hand, my hubby and son love shrimp. Therefore, my hubby will eat shrimp, prawns or langoustine any way I prepare them. If your family is fond of shrimp, making a simple meal prepared with shrimp is economical and affordable. Serve air-fryer lemon pepper shrimp with lemon jasmine rice and steamed asparagus for a simple yet satisfying meal.

Serve as an Appetizer

Living in WI, shrimp isn’t really thought of as a meal option. It’s considered more of a side dish, like French fries or as an appetizer. Shrimp is usually breaded and deep-fried or served chilled with Hoffman House shrimp sauce. That’s fine and dandy but shrimp is great served as a meal option too. That’s where the air-fryer comes in. The air-fryer takes shrimp to a whole new level. Many recipes can be found on Pinterest for air-fryer recipes.

What are Langostino?

Langostino is Spanish for crustaceans but elsewhere it has a different meaning. For instance, in the United States, it’s commonly referred to as a squat lobster. A squat lobster is neither a true lobster nor a prawn. Crustaceans labeled as Langostino are no more than 3-inches long. Langostino are sometimes confused with langoustines or Norway lobster, which is a whole different chapter:)

What is a Prawn?

A prawn is a common name for small aquatic crustaceans with an exoskeleton and ten legs. The term prawn is used particularly in the United Kingdom, Ireland and European countries. It refers to large swimming crustaceans or shrimp. Over the years in North America, the term shrimp and prawn are now used almost interchangeable.
