Crayfish on the braai in Cape Town

21 February 2011 in Uncategorized

Cape Town was wonderful, the indaba was so much fun and our hosts were marvelous. I will write more about it all later in the week, I am exhausted and my liver is knackered!

Crayfish on the braai

These crays were basted with a simple garlic butter sauce, then it was 10 minutes with the shell-side down, turn and cook for another 2 minutes. They were beautifully done, succulent and my mouth is watering as I type.

I wonder if you can guess who our hostess was?
