The west coast rock lobster populations are currently under pressure and we only source ours from licensed fishermen who harvest legally against strict quotas and size limits that have been issued by the department of fisheries. They are also offloaded under the watchful eye of the departments inspectors they weigh and record all stock harvested. The style of harvest by ring nets/traps is very selective and has almost no by catch and causes little to no damage on bottom habitats.

Lemon Butter Crayfish
Crayfish is very easy to prepare. You will need:
- 4 medium crayfish
- 100 g butter
- splash of olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 lemon
- 1 Tbls salt
- salt and pepper
- Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add a tablespoon of salt and stir to dissolve.
- Add the crayfish to the water whole and boil for 6-7 minutes depending on the size ( we used medium sized crayfish)
- While the crayfish are boiling prepare a bowl of ice cold water.
- Once the crayfish have finished boiling, place them in the ice slurry to stop the cooking process.
- Once cooled remove the tails, cut the underside of the tail, crack the shell open and remove the meat. Cut the tails in half length ways so you have 8 pieces.
- Heat a pan over medium to high heat. Add a splash of olive oil then the butter ( the olive oil prevents the butter from burning). Once the butter has melted add the garlic and fry until tender and fragrant then add the tails, squeeze with lemon and keep basting them with butter for roughly 4 minutes. You don't want to overcook them.
- Season with salt and pepper and serve.
