My husband is a keen spear fisherman, which is great as I love my fresh crays!


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup Grated cheese
  • 80g Butter
  • 1/2 cup Self reading flour
  • 2 tsp Minced garlic
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 1 Diced onion
  • 1 Clove of garlic diced
  • 1 Crayfish meat
  • 1 Salt, pepper & lemon to season

Method

  1. In a pot of boiling salt water add a green crayfish and cook for 8 minutes of until flesh is firm (don't overcook!)
  2. In a saucepan melt butter and add flour, stir until crumbly
  3. Add milk gradually continuously stirring, add grated cheese and minced garlic, turn off heat when desired consistency is reached.
  4. Fry diced onion and garlic until clear, add in shredded crayfish meat and season to taste. Transfer into cheese sauce and pour into fray shell, bake under a hot grill for approximately 6 minutes or until golden, serve with lemon!

Notes... Crayfish flesh can be a little overpowering on its own this is a nice way to mellow out the flavour!

  • Sounds rather tasty, thanks for sharing.

  • I’m definitely going to try this if I’m ever lucky to get a crayfish. They are usually already cooked and frozen if I ever find them.

  • If I had those fresh, fresh crays I would have to eat them au naturel – the only time I would use your excellent mornay would be if I had a frozen one. Lucky you to get them so often.
