Catching Crayfish with the Riley's
Watch out we'll soon be calling ourselves the Fernley-whittinstall-warners! A new adventure took place just down the road in Broadway, where we were taken to a secret place to find the illusive cray fish. The promise of fat juicy lobster like shell fish was truly tempting (especially after 2 pints of best beer at the Crown & Trumpet).
Crayfish are eaten all over the world. 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. At crawfish boils or other meals where the entire body of the crayfish is presented, other portions may be eaten.
We were not disappointed, and caught about 20 of the beasties. We then cooked them on the BBQ later that day. Thanks Rileys!
