    1. To garnish, peel your langoustines tails if you wish, or leave them in their shells.
    2. Put a frying pan on the hob over a medium heat.
    3. Pour in the oil and sauté the Langoustine Tails for 1½ minutes on one side. Flip them over and cook for 1 minute before adding a small dash of Pernod and a glug of white wine.
