I’ve been wanting to try gluten-free Panko breadcrumbs for quite some time. If you don’t know what they are, they’re a really light, crispy Japanese-style breadcrumb usually used for deep-frying foods. They tend to stay crispier longer than traditional breadcrumbs because they don’t absorb as much grease.
While at Costco the other day, I ran across something I had never heard of: Langostino lobster tails. “Langostino” is Spanish for “little lobster.” They are delightful little mini-looking lobster tails that taste pretty much like lobster, but are a heck of a lot easier to eat! I decided to use my Panko crumbs to turn this dish into a gourmet weeknight dinner!
|Prep Time||5 minutes|
|Cook Time||15 minutes|
- 2 lbs Langostino lobster tails thawed and drained
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 2 TBSP white wine
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 2 tsp dried cilantro or fresh if you have on hand!
- 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup gluten-free Panko breadcrumbs
- 1 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Pour Langostino into bottom of a 9x13 pan.
- In a bowl, combine the butter, white wine, garlic and cilantro. Pour over Langostino and stir to coat.
- In another bowl, combine the Panko, parmesan, and salt, then sprinkle over the Langostino.
- Bake in oven for about 10 minutes, then flip oven to broil and cook another 5-6 minutes, until golden brown.

This seems to be a delicious recipe but I wonder if the langostinos will not be overlooked since they are already cooked when you get them at Costco? I’ve been buying them for years and using them as a cold appetizer with cocktail sauce in lieu of shrimp.
They have a delightful, sweet ,buttery taste and texture making them ideal to use in salads,appetizers,pizza topping etc..
