Feuille de bric are very fine sheets of pastry, and here it is deep fried to achieve a crisp texture, contrasting beautifully with the sweet langoustine tail hidden inside. This is a remarkable langoustine recipe from William Drabble comprised of simple, yet flavourful, ingredients for a brilliant seafood canapé.
