Langoustines on ice


2-pounds langoustines.  To clean pull off the claws and legs.  Make a slit down the center splitting the shell in half. Remove the vain.  Steam the langoustines in water, lemon juice, 1 whole garlic pod, and a 1/2 teaspoon liquid crab boil until they turn orange.  Remove from the heat, put in an ice bath to stop the cooking.  Reserve one to put on the rim of each serving glass.
