So, what is extrait de crustacé?

Extrait de crustacé is a French term that translates to "extract of crustacean." It refers to a flavoring ingredient made from the shells or meat of crustaceans, such as lobster, shrimp, or crab. This extract is commonly used in French cuisine, particularly in sauces and soups, to add a rich, savory flavor with a hint of seafood. It's also a popular ingredient in Asian cuisine, where it's used to add depth of flavor to stir-fries and noodle dishes. Due to its potent flavor, a little bit of extrait de crustacé goes a long way in enhancing the taste of a dish.
