2 cups dry white wine

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

2 carrots, chopped

2 onions, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

6 sprigs parsley

10 peppercorns, crushed

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1/3 cup hazelnut oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

18-24 langostinos (prawns), deveined

Lemon wedges, for garnish


  1. Prepare the court bouillon by combining all the ingredients in a large pot, along with 1 quart of water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer 30 minutes. Strain the liquid, return to pot and bring back to a simmer. Meanwhile, combine the hazelnut oil, parsley, thyme, chives, salt, and pepper, and set aside.
  2. Add the langostinos to the court bouillon, and poach until just cooked, 3 to 4 minutes. Pull the langostinos out and cut the tails in half, lengthwise. Arrange the warm langostinos on a platter and drizzle with the hazelnut-herb oil. Serve warm with the lemon wedges.
