Popcorn Crayfish


  • 3 Cups of Vegetable Oil
  • 2 x Crayfish Tails
  • 2/3 Cup of Tapioca Flour
  • 2 x 2/3 of a Cup of Cornflour
  • 1tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 cup (and a dash) of ice-cold soda water
  • Tartare Big Mac Sauce:
  • 1/2 Cup of Best Foods Mayo
  • A handful of white onion (finely chopped)
  • A handful of gherkins (finely chopped)
  • Pinch of salt, pepper + paprika


  1. Put your oil into a pan with high sides and heat it on medium to high, watching it so it doesn’t burn
  2. Take your crayfish tails and run them under hot water then snip up the middle of both sides of the shell and remove the meat.
  3. Pat the meat dry with a paper towel and cut it up into bite-sized pieces, I cut mine into 1-inch cubes.
  4. Sift your Tapioca Flour & Cornflour into a bowl then add garlic powder, baking soda, salt & pepper, mixing well.
  5. Make a well and add your soda water and whisk together to make a smooth batter
  6. Dredge your crayfish through the batter mixing to coat well and put it into the oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan
  7. Cook until they go brown, then let them cool on a wire rack with baking paper underneath
  8. Mix together your Mayo, onion, gherkins, lime, salt and pepper, paprika, and mix well.
