Sourced & Seasoned: Festive Crayfish Rolls

‘Tis the season for feasting, and ‘Sourced and Seasoned’ December contributor, Style My Plate, is bringing you two oh-so-festive recipes to serve up on the big day. The first is a delicious take on the traditional Christmas cray dish – Festive Crayfish Rolls. Each brioche bun is filled lovingly with chunks of fresh crayfish that’s been smothered in a luscious homemade mayonnaise. Paired with a glass of bubbly, these decadent rolls will be your new Christmas winner.

Impress your guests with these picture perfect crayfish rolls this festive season. Whether you cook your own cray or buy it precooked, all the ingredients you need for these beauties can be found under the one roof at Prahran Market. These decadent crayfish filled brioche rolls only require very few steps to create that WOW factor. The addition of homemade mayonnaise makes these luscious rolls that little bit more special – you will never use store bought mayonnaise again. This recipe yields extra, so you can lather it on your Christmas leftover sandwiches after all the festivities come to an end.

If you are feeding a lot of mouths, I suggest cooking your own crayfish tail/s like I have done here. Not only is it more cost effective, it is also less fiddly to remove the crayfish meat. I got this big boy from Prahran Seafoods, which was very reasonably priced. For the homemade mayonnaise I picked up my free range eggs from from Whisked and purchased my verjuice, oils and dijon mustard from The Essential Ingredient. I got my beautiful micro herbs and lemons from Reliable Fruit, and my celery, chives and spring onions from F & J Fruiterers. For the buns, you can get beautiful round brioche rolls from Noisette Bakery.
