Crayfish @ Lac Leman

Despite their looks freshwater crayfish are not related to the two-clawed lobster; or at least not in the last 100 million years or so. Of more importance for the diner is the fact that all the meat in a crayfish, and the largest European ones reach only 200 grams, is in the tail. If the average crayfish weighs 100 grams, and that’s a maybe, then maybe there will be 30 grams of meat in that tail; however, that can still be an extremely tasty 30 grams.
