Default Best Yabbie cooking methods and recipe

Well guys share your best method of cooking yabbies and best recipe.

I have always just put them in freezer (when at home) to slow them up a bit then thrown them into boiling water with a bit of salt.

Share all the age old secret methods and recipes

I'm still trying to catch the yabbies. I have a foot long rod, and spent hours designing and building a tiny reel and used single gauge polyester sewing thread. Baiting the tiny hook is pretty fiddly.

It doesn't cast very far, which might be the problem.

Collapsable drop pot. Soap as bait. We once caught about 300 out of a mate's dam using this technique from a tinny in about an hour. The soap has fat in it and thats what they go for.You can use meat if you want to. Then we used them to catch Murray Cod, Yellow Belly and carp???, on the Darling up near Bourke. We then watched the snakes and goannas fight over the carp we left on the bank...that was interesting!!!!

If you want to eat them, flush them out by putting them in fresh water for about a day then cook them in salted water. Gets rid of the muddy taste.

You guy's obviously still have a river.Does the lower reaches of the Darling have water in it now?In S.A the crabs were pre-cooked on the beach the other day.I've been told of yabbies as big as a long-neck coming from the Murray.Don't think you'd catch 'em that size anymore.Good with a salad+sea- food dressing.

Cherabin hmmm good. Cant beat garlic, chillie and butter on the pan in the tinny with a cold beer on a hot NT day. Thats when we arnt using them to catch barra.

Best baits in opera house trap: Soap, potato or cat food.

Useless infor for ya: Dont know about other species but cherabin are vegitarian. Generally they are eating whatever bait you put in pot to get it out of their area. ie your dirty bait in poluting their home.
