Koura - New Zealand Fresh Water Crayfish
The Koura is a native New Zealand - Fresh Water Crayfish.
It is actually quite small - up to about 80cm. It lives in fresh water such as streams, lakes and ponds, and even in swamps.
To cook - chill in freezer - for about three hours (humain!!) - cook for about 3 minutes on a barbeque (and then douse in cold ice water - to stop is cooking inside).
Serve with herbed butter etc....
So where can you get Koura from (i.e. buy):
Probably best to source your own .... somehow... ask some local farmers - who have streams etc.....
