    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Butterfly the crayfish tails by cutting it lengthways through the centre and trim off fins. You will now have four half tails.

  2. Place half lobster tails into the Varoma bowl flesh-side up. Season flesh with salt and pepper, and liberally cover flesh with garlic and herb butter.

  3. Add beer to the TM bowl. Close the lid and place Varoma bowl containing seasoned tails on top. Steam for 15-18 minutes / Varoma / speed 2.

  4. Cut the lemon in half. Juice one half and keep aside; use the other half of the lemon to cut and make wedgies. Once steamed, plate the crayfish tails immediately with the lemon wedges and drizzle the tails with the reserved lemon juice.

Tip

Steaming times may vary depending on the thickness of the crayfish tail. The size of the crayfish tails will also determine how many you can put in the Varoma bowl at any given time steaming.

The crayfish tails will curl up as they are steamed / cooked. If you are big on presentation, use a wooden skewer through the length of the tail.

    I think I overcooked my crays. They may have been a bit small for this recipe. Also, the smell of the steaming XXXX was pretty gross.

    The taste was good if you could get over how badly I overcooked them. I will try this recipe again and update my rating.
