The Australian crayfish is one of the best-eating seafood creatures in the world, especially those out of Tasmania and South Australia, where the water is colder. The flavour and texture is pure luxury. This is a classic Chinese dish in a lot of ways – the efu noodles have a spongy, almost chewy texture that’s great for soaking up the sauce with all those flavours. This is an extravagant dish for impressing people, which is why it’s usually a fixture on any banquet table during Chinese New Year celebrations, or when the in-laws come to visit.
