Green Notes

Norwegian lobster, also known as langoustine, is not actually a lobster, but a type of prawn. Despite its name, it is not native to Norway but is found in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean from Iceland to Morocco. Highly valued for its sweet and delicate flavor, and is often used in high-end seafood dishes. In Norway, it is a popular ingredient in traditional dishes such as “skagenrøre,” a cold seafood salad. Norwegian lobsters are also known for their unique mating habits, as the males have specialized legs to transfer packets of sperm to the females during mating.
