THE LOWDOWN ON YABBIES
Although the most common way of cooking yabbies is to place them in salted boiling water until they change colour, grilling them on the barbecue adds a wonderful smokiness. Yabbies can be caught any time of year, but are best in summer and early autumn. As with most crayfish, yabbies go well served with citrusy flavours, such as lemon butter sauces, and herb and garlic vinaigrettes. Whatever style you choose, keep in mind that this crustacean’s sweet yet savoury meat is highlighted best with fresh produce.
