Recipe For Pasta With Crayfish And Mushrooms

When Dave and I moved to Gordons Bay we were really struggling. We were lucky enough to be invited to join someone crayfishing and this became our standard protein of choice. Crayfish as eaten steamed, poached, grilled, braaid and in every combination of pasta you can imagine. I made crayfish macaroni cheese on more than one occasion. Now, we go out crayfishing for the love of the water, and we have a freezer full of tails for the special meals with friends. This pasta dish is a lovely way to use your crayfish if you too have an excess of them.
