No dinning out for the past two weeks now since Lockdown. All restraurants and eating places were closed including all the fast-food chains. There were no takeaways, no uber-eats, no deliveries. My night craving for KFC’S Wicked Wings hit me every now and then.
One night, while missing my favorite Fish & Chips at Ocean Seafood, I ordered online a whole box of fresh fish instead. Along with it was a big 1kg fresh Crayfish.
We’ve already had a few meals out of that delivery. Tonight we cooked the Crayfish. My first time ever cooking a crayfish. That was a treat for us, a reward for being good in isolation, stay home and keep safe.
That sumptuous dish cost us around $80. There were three of us so we have one portion leftover. Credit to lockdown, you not only stay safe but you $ave.
Tip: A quick simple way to cook a crayfish.
Fill a big pot (enough for the size of the crayfish) with water just enough to cover up to half the level of the crayfish. Sprinkle some salt and 2 tablespoons of vinegar (optional). Cover and bring to boil for 15 minutes. You can use the water (thickened with cornstarch and flavorings) as a gravy for the noodles.
