It’s another night of wondering what to do with the 2 kilos of crayfish that I bought from @dragonoceanfishery before the lockdown. Initially I bought it because I was craving for crab/lobster noodles and thought that I could substitute the lobster with this poor man’s lobster (Not so poor lah considering that its RM88/kg – such a nice number horr). After reading up on a lot of the recipes available on the net, I don’t think that’s such a good idea to replace it with this crayfish. So, I shall keep that crab/lobster noodles recipe for another time (and also when I decided to spend on a lobster -_-).

Back to the crayfish; I bumped into a recipe that used Cajun-garlic-butter on a lobster and they grilled it. I thought that sounds pretty delicious for my quick dinner. So, I went to get all my spices ready and bammm I saw an untouched Moroccan Seasoning sitting nicely in my fridge. So, maybe I can try this instead of the Cajun. I did, and it turned out zeeeeeelicious. I won’t waste your time anymore.

Recipe down below.


10-15 crayfish

1 bulb of garlic, minced

1/4 cup butter melted

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp Moroccan Seasoning

  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  2. Prepare your crayfish by cutting down the centre and arrange it on a grill baskets.
  3. In a bowl, combine the melted butter, minced garlic, olive oil and moroccan seasoning. Brush the mixture on top of the prepared crayfish.
  4. Place the lobster on grill flesh side down until its lightly charred. Flip over and brush again with the awesome mixture and continue to cook until its cooked throughout.
Arrange it on a grill basket so that you can grill it faster.


  1. You can substitute the crayfish with prawns too. Just like how I substitute the lobster with crayfish.
  2. If heating your griller is too much work, you can choose to just grill it on a pan. It works as well too but I cant promise you that lovely charred taste will be there though.
  3. I read somewhere that you can use blow torch too but I don’t know. Let me know if you did it this way.
Charred crayfish ❤

You can pour/brush the rest of your moroccan concoction on the hot crawfish and I used lotsa coriander here just because I love it.

What do I eat it with ?

I had it just like that and had some with Arab bread. Moroccan whattttt! I guess, you can pair it with rice too. It’s really up to you.
