Crayfish Tails


Crayfish are lobsterlike freshwater crustaceans that are found all over the world; varying in size from two to eight ounces (0.06 to 0.2 kg), the meat has a mild, but succulent flavour.

Crayfish meat is an excellent source of Selenium and Vitamin B12.

  Sweet and Sour Crayfish   Serves 4  


Slash along the back of each crayfish, then wash and dry them. Mix together the flour, salt and pepper. Dredge the crayfish in the seasoned flour and then deep fry them in about 1" hot oil until golden. If using a wok do them in batches. Drain.

Heat 2 tbsps oil in a wok or frying pan. Cook the peppers and chilli together for 2-3 minutes. Add the rice wine or sherry and sweet and sour sauce. Season to taste with the sugar and pepper and bring to the boil.

Mix together the oil, cornflour and water and add to the sauce. Stir until thickened. Toss the crayfish back into the pan and heat through, stirring, for 1-2 minutes before serving.
