Tips for Redclaws?

Postby stevo. » Wed Dec 22, 2010 12:23 pm

Anyone have any basic tips for cooking Redclaw Crayfish?

I think i cool them in ice water, cut them down the center? Boil them in water with some salt added, then put them in ice water to cool?

Does that sound right?

Cool them to put them to sleep,fridge or freezer.
Cut them in half (split)
Put them on coals or a grill plate shell down and drizzle olive oil over them.Or butter or lemon.
Add seasoning as prefered while cooking.

get a cheap plastic container, drill a few holes in it, use a small handful dried cat food ( any kind with fish flavour )and then top up the container with tinned cat food.
works a treat, seen some almost as big as a 1.25ltr bottle caught using this method
