Crawfish (frozen) is now supplied by Ostra Fine Foods to fulfil the growing demand for crawfish in restaurants throughout Cambodia. Whilst in the past, crawfish were never popular in South East Asia, there is a growing demand for them and many restaurants are offering them as steamed or boiled in a bag (an apron is required). Crawfish is eaten all over the world, and like other edible crustaceans, only a small portion of the body of a crawfish is edible. In most prepared dishes, such as soups and bisques, only the tail portion is served. For crawfish or other meals where the entire body of the crayfish is presented, other portions, such as the claw meat, may be eaten.
Crawfish is most recognisable as a specialty of the American south the “Crawfish boil”. A good crawfish boil is always eaten with the hands and as such has seen a rise in popularity worldwide due to the novelty value of the experience and the overall taste sensation. A traditional Louisiana crawfish boil usually includes generous amounts of potatoes, corn, onion, sausage and of course crawfish! This is boiled together with a special crawfish boil liquid spice and then seasoned with dry spices including paprika and cayenne pepper. Serve crawfish hot, Louisiana-style, spread over a picnic table covered with newspapers.
Crawfish are known by many different names worldwide. In Australia they are known mostly as crayfish or yabbies (a favourite pastime of young Australian boys is to catch crawfish in local creeks and boil them on the banks). In Europe and different parts of the world, they are also known as crawdads, freshwater lobsters, mountain lobsters, or mudbugs. Crawfish are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters, to which they are related.
Ostra Fine Foods imports frozen crawfish in 2-kilogram packets, which are easily stored in freezer space.
