A cheaper, British twist on the All-American lobster roll made with British crayfish, perfect for summer gatherings or indulgent weekend lunches.


  • 4 Mini Brioche Rolls
  • Unsalted Butter
  • 140g (5 oz) Crayfish Tails, cooked and peeled
  • 2 tsp Homemade Mayonnaise

  1. Separate each roll and spread a little butter on the exposed section of bun where you have pulled them apart.
  2. Heat a frying pan over high heat and toast the buttered sections until golden.
  3. Allow to cool while you combine the crayfish, mayonnaise and season with lemon juice and freshly ground sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Stuff each roll with the filling, and finish with a sprinkling of chives
