Zest from one lemon
1/2 c finely chopped mint

In a large skillet, 1 1/2 TBSP olive oil over medium heat, reduce to low and add shallots, cook until softened, about 3 minutes.

Add Langostines, stir to coat in oil cook 1 minute. Add wine and increase to medium high heat, cook 2 minutes until Langostines are opaque. Remove from heat and stir in zest.
