Tips:

  1. When you buy crayfish, you’d better buy the ones that are alive and kicking. The alive crayfish’s meat is tender. Do not buy dead crayfish since its taste like noodle stall. Sometimes the crayfish’s shell is very soft, it is in the shedding period. You can still buy these crayfish, as long as it is live and fresh.
  2. Leave the tap running when brush crayfish. It’s easy to brush off the yellow crayfish paste after cutting the head, so that you can clean crayfish before removing its head.
  3. If you don’t eat it immediately after washing, you‘d better stir-fry with oil to keep the shrimp fresh.
  4. The crayfish washing process is very long,1500g (about 50 crayfish)usually take about 1 hour to wash.
