Like other edible crustaceans, only a small portion of the body of a crayfish is edible.
In most prepared dishes, such as soups, bisques and étouffées, only the tail portion is served.
Other meals where the entire body of the crayfish is presented, other portions, such as the claw meat, may be eaten.
Claws of larger boiled specimens are often pulled apart to access the meat inside.
Another favorite is to suck the head of the crayfish, as seasoning and flavor can collect in the fat of the boiled interior.

How To Prepare Crayfish / Crawfish
- Crayfish are generally suitable for the same treatment as large prawns or langoustines.
- With such sweet meat, simplicity is key: eat cooked fresh crayfish with mayonnaise and a dash of lemon juice, or fry them in paprika, garlic and plenty of olive oil and stir into pasta.
- We recommend boiling crayfish in salted water with a healthy dose of bronze fennel, for flavour, and serving them alongside thin slices of buttered granary bread.
- Crayfish are also delicious in risottos, soups and stews.
