It’s August and now is the time for Crayfish parties! Some people buy them fresh, some frozen, we buy them live and boil them ourselves. Here is a step-by-step recipe that serves 6 so you might want double or even triple the recipe.
- 5 pounds live crayfish
- 1 large bunch of dill crowns (flower heads)
- 1 12 ounces bottle dark beer, porter or stout
- 5 pints water
- 1 cup sea salt
1. Make sure you cook the crayfish within hours of buying them to prevent too many of them dying.
