This freshwater crustacean looks like a small Lobster –averaging 10cm / 55g. The
tail meat is succulent with a Prawn-like texture and a lovely sweet taste.
European wild Crayfish are almost extinct and not recommended, but other species
are successfully farmed around the world. Whole Crayfish are available frozen
though harder to get fresh, and can be cooked like a Lobster. Fresh tail meat
preserved in brine is readily available and is ideal for salads, pasta and any prawn
dishes. Not to be confused with Crawfish.
