    THE ICONIC WEST COAST FAVOURITE

    The west coast rock lobster is endemic to the west coast of South Africa and is a truly iconic seafood favourite all along the coast. Whether they are steamed, grilled or braaied there is no denying their deliciousness. Unfortunately, this coupled with the longevity and slow growth of the species has led to severe overfishing which has depleted the population. That is why we only source our crayfish from licensed cray fisherman who comply with the stringent harvesting restrictions imposed on this delicious crustacean.

  • Instructions

    Your crayfish will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost, simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

  • Eco rating

    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.

    Braaied Crayfish Tails with Butter

    Crayfish is very easy to prepare on the braai, usually only needing a bit of butter, but this recipe adds three flavoured butters to the mix. You will need:

    • 8 Greenfish Crayfish Tails
    • 250g butter, melted.
    • 2 anchovies, chopped
    • handful black olives, chopped.
    • handful fresh mixed soft herbs (mint, basil and parsley).
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed.
    • large pinch saffron.
    • large pinch chilli flakes/fresh chilli, sliced.

    Preparation:

    1. Fire up the braai and get it to a medium heat.
    2. Half crayfish tails lengthways and remove the veins.
    3. Rinse under cold water and pat dry.
    4. Brush each crayfish or tail with a little melted butter.
    5. Divide the remaining butter into 3 small dishes.
    6. Add the anchovies and olives to 1 dish, the herbs and garlic to another, and the saffron and chili to the remaining dish.
    7. Mix and allow the butters to stand for a short while for the flavours to infuse (keep in a warm spot so they don’t solidify).
    8. Grill the tails on the braai for 5 – 6 minutes. Serve immediately and drizzle with the butters.

          Delicious Crayfish Tails

          Upon receipt of the crayfish tails, we weighed each one. What I found was that on average, the regular size tails from Greenfish were each an average of 20 grams heavier(sometimes more) than tails we had purchased previously from a different vendor. We cooked them up and had an amazing meal - great value for money and totally delicious! Can't wait now to try the tuna steaks we ordered as well.

          Large Cayfish Tails

          Deliciously succulent, with the firm flesh of a truly fresh crayfish, I grilled these beauties, then removed the flesh and added then to a lemony, cream sauce and served on top of a butternut pasta. It was amazing!

          crayfish delight

          I steamed them for a few minutes. Served with lemon butter garlic sauce on rice. I keep the shells, crush and boil them. Strain and boil down. A wonderful bisque base. Next time I will simply heat the sauce and drop the crayfish in a few minutes before serving.

          Crayfish Tails

          Ordered before 11h00 and delivered at 14h00. Haven't cooked them yet. The tails are a bit small, maybe go for larger ones.

          Citrus Prawn Salad with an Orange Honey Mustard reduction dressing

          Fantastic !!! My Prawn Tails Box arrived right on time, professionally packaged and fresh, ready to be magically transformed into a Citrus Prawn Salad. This formed the starter for a 5 course meal I cooked for 9 family members. Here's what they had to say: The Prawn Salad was a delicious summer boquette of flavours with orange infused prawns. The salad was crisp, fresh and appetizing. The prawns were fantastic and really did have a special citrus flavour Well rounded salad, flavours of orange reduction came through nicely, creating a fresh flavour Beautifully infused sauce sprang in the mouth from the orange infused prawns, epicurean delight, delicate and dainty. The citrus went all the way through the prawn. I have never had anything like it. it was amazing. The slices of orange were delicious, as well as the dressing You could taste the orange though the prawn, which gave the salad a very fresh and unforgettable taste

          Crayfish Bisque

          Fantastic !!! My Crayfish Tails Box arrived right on time, professionally packaged and fresh, ready to be magically transformed into a Crayfish Bisque. This formed the starter for a 5 course meal I cooked for 9 family members. Here's what they had to say: - The Crayfish Bisque was mouth-wateringly fresh, a perfect balance of sour and salty with generous chunks of Crayfish pieces. - A complex and subtle flavour. Delicious layers and flavours of the sea. Creamy, beautifully textured crayfish in a sublime blend of the sea. Five Stars - The Crayfish Bisque was a complex dish with a beautiful collection of flavours. - Bisque, all flavours came together well, crayfish succulent, a perfect combination. - Bisque ! Well ! After the Lord Mayors show - A taste to live for, please make it again soon. This dish was the best ever (not even in a 5 start restaurant) - This was so good, I don't even eat lobster or fish but I ate this because it was so splendid. The crayfish was so soft. A union of fresh, fruity sweetness and a touch of sea and spices. The creamy Crayfish Bisque was melting in my mouth, the taste was perfectly balanced.
