Home cooking of spicy crayfish

Introduction to the recipe

The method of making crayfish is actually very simple. What is more troublesome for home operation is actually the process. Brush, wash, pump the intestines, open the back, and cut off the head a little for easy taste. Of course, slowness is slower, but victory is not as clean and assured. Can we guarantee each one is alive, can we guarantee each one is clean? Food outside, most of the time, these simple requirements are dreams.

Speaking of handling crayfish: Many shrimp stalls can now help with the intestines. But I don’t recommend everyone to do that. The gutted crayfish is basically whimpering. Wait until you take it home and burn it after processing. It is not so fresh. In addition, after the intestines are pumped, the sewage can easily penetrate into the shrimp when cleaning. My preferred method is to buy live shrimp, wash it first, then pump the intestines, cut your head, and finally open your back.

Get the crayfish in four easy steps:

1. Hold the back of the crayfish, put it under the faucet, and scrub the surface of the shrimp with a small brush. (The place where the belly and lobster tongs turn is most prone to dirt)

2. Note that there are three tails on the tail of the crayfish. Hold the midrange piece, twist it hard, and then pull it out, and the shrimp intestine will follow.

3. Use the cutting head to cut the shrimp slightly behind.

4. Cut from the place where the tail of the shrimp is pumped, insert the pointed scissors into it, cut it along the shell of the shrimp, and cut to the connection part of the shrimp head.
