Mozambique's Giant Crawfish... What would you do with em?


Saw these on Bourdain's No Reservations the other night. Filmed in Mozambique... These things are absolutely huge,...

They are called Giant Crayfish; however, I'd imagine they are probably more closely related to lobsters.

How many would you need to boil to feed the family

Holy shite. Those things are bigger than the lobsters in the Rosewood Grille ads at the bus stops in Vegas.





I might thread em on kebobs.

They are spiny lobsters I'm pretty sure. They can be found all over the Caribbean and even S. Florida. I've never seen any close to the size he is holding in that picture. That's

That looks like a lobster. This is a giant crawfish from Tasmania (can get up to 11 lbs.)
