So, what is crostacei?

Crostacei is an Italian term that refers to a variety of crustaceans commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine. These include crabs, lobsters, shrimps, prawns and crayfishes. Crostacei are highly appreciated for their delicate yet distinct seafood flavor and juicy texture. They are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, making them a healthy addition to any dish. Crostacei adds depth and complexity to pasta dishes, risottos, and soups. Grilling or steaming crostacei with aromatic herbs and spices brings out intense flavors and aromas that delight the senses.
