Crayfish Cocktail

Ingredients (serves 2)

A generous handful of the cooked Crayfish claw and tail meat
1 tbsp chopped Cilantro
1 tbsp chopped Chives
2 tbsp Mayonnaise
Juice from half a lemon (to taste – too much lemon will destroy the flavours!)
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
A handful of thinly sliced Iceberg Lettuce
3 – 4 spears of blanched asparagus sliced lengthwise
Optional: a dash of Brandy and or Tabasco


1.  Mix a generous handful of the cooked crayfish meat with chopped cilantro and chives, mayonnaise, lemon juice and smoked paprika
2. Add a handful of thinly sliced Iceberg lettuce to the mix.
3. Optional: You can add half a cap of brandy if you like and / or a dash of Tabasco (like the lemon, these strong flavours can ruin the dish, so test it out first in a small portion of your mix). Mix everything gently
4. Arrange slices of blanched asparagus around a cocktail glass
5. Top them off with the cocktail mix, a slice of lemon and a dusting of more smoked paprika
