Dwayne’s Barbecued Crayfish

Dwayne caught and cooked the crayfish.

SPICY CRAYFISH RISOTTO made with a crayfish caught on the Great Barrier Reef

It was while sailing the Howard Group of Islands in the Great Barrier Reef that we caught our first crayfish. We arrived there after lunch, shortly after catamaran ‘Miss Polly’, and jumped straight into the beautifully inviting water for a snorkel. Dwayne bagged an approximately three kilo crayfish. Yay!

Gerry and Polly from ‘Miss Polly’ joined us on the beach, for a cook up, where we all enjoyed crayfish until we were full and still had some left over!

To cook it,  Dwayne simply cut the tail down the centre and washed it in the sea.

He then spread it with garlic and butter…

We enjoyed a few drinks and a bonfire while we waited for it to cook.
