    Default Do I have to serve anything with crayfish?

    The guy I work with caught DH a crayfish yesterday. I was orginally going grocery shopping after work cos mother hubbards cupboards are bare! But now I have the crayfish it can't really sit in the car so I will have to go straight home.

    So do you think its ok to just give DH a crayfish for dinner with nothing else? I could maybe whip up a quick salad (i think ihave enough ingredients for that).

    Or should i go home, drop off the crayfish and then go back out (pls say noooooooooooooo to this!!!)

    You could serve him crayfish for dinner the same way you could just serve a steak for dinner.

    IMO it needs something to go with it - salad/veg etc

    is it fresh water or salt variety? Salt water i'd just eat it and be perfectly happy with it plopped on a plate. Fresh water ones may need something to spark them up a bit.

    the cray was caught in salt water - yesterday at 3pm apparently?

    I have only cooked in them in kitchens on a grill will lots of herbs/garlic/butter. It was just served on its own and you ordered sides so its all abit beyond me.

    I don't like crayfish at all.

    I would go the cray with garlic / butter / herbs all alone on the plate, yummo. You could add a bit of salad to it also.

    Same for me, simple herb butter. We had crayfish on Xmas day and only had salad with it. If it's fresh then you shouldnt need anything else - yum!
