Cooking crustaceans with champagne

As we mentioned in our recipe for champagne lamb, champagne has been used in cooking for a very long time. It is used for marinades or sauces, whether it's for meat or fish.

The same goes for crustaceans. There are countless recipes for lobster with champagne emulsion, langoustine on champagne sabayon, or casserole dishes of crustaceans with champagne.

Champagne has two uses in cooking. The first is to flavor the sauces that will accompany the fish. You can choose slightly fruity wines like our De Lozey Blanc de Blancs champagne.

Lobster with champagne recipe

In this lobster with champagne recipe, we will use champagne in two ways. The first is to create a marinade using champagne. For the marinade, we can use our 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs champagne, which will add citrus notes to the marinade. The second is to create a creamy sauce using our De Lozey Brut Tradition champagne.
