You eat the claws/legs, tail and there is a fair amount of meat in the sides of the head/thorax.  There is a reason why they're known as spiny crayfish, those spines are needle sharp!

I can imagine. I have just one rule: if I can't hold it with my bare hand I won't eat it.

OK, I made that rule up after seeing that image. :grin:

Interesting reading! I'll eat a lobster in a heartbeat, but have to forgo the drawn butter. One of my sons works for a local hardware store and bought a ridiculously large smoker, which had been returned because of scorched paint. That was caused by them spilling grease on it. ::)  He smoked 3 slabs of meat, but for most of us (not me), it was too rare.

I made homemade teriyaki sauce with meatballs, stir fry veggies, and white rice last night. Very yummy and decently inexpensive.

I'm cooking an old family favourite tonight:

Lamb Chops Bradbury

6 Forequarter Chops
1 Tablespoon Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon Mustard powder
4 Tablespoons Tomato Ketchup
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar
½ Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Hot Water
1 Beef Stock Cube

Combine flour and mustard and coat chops.
Place chops in oven-proof casserole (with a lid), best if closely packed and two layers are OK. 
Sprinkle any left over flour mixture over chops.
Combine all other ingredients, pour over chops - ideally, sauce just covers chops.
Put lid on casserole and cook for 2 hours at 150°C (300°F)

It is!  The meat just falls off the bone and the sauce is luscious and complements the chops really well.  I usually toss in a medium potato per person into the oven when I put the chops on and sometimes I make foil packets of carrot and parsnip, with a little butter, and two hours at that heat does them just nice!

Poached salmon with some sor of herbs on top. My youngest son is cooking them, so I don't know which spices. Accompanied by sliced cucumber and baby carrots (both raw). Youngest son won't eat cooked carrots.  :???:

Cooking carrots so they are not either rubbery or mushy is an art I have not achieved except by luck. So, I am a raw carrot fan also!  Might shred them and pickle overnight in a nice, sharp vinegar with a little warm spice. Balsamic vinegar if I am wanting a sweeter taste.

I like fried parsnip fritters, don't work with carrots . . .

Parsnip fritters,you say? I'll have to try that sometime. I rescued the fish from getting overdone. Caught it just as it was flaky. Yummay!
