Don’t let the feelers scare you off! Crayfish are actually really good for you, they are high in protein and they are also delicious if you are fan of food from the sea. They can also be prepared in many different ways so don’t be shy to give them a try. Whilst they do contain a fair bit of cholesterol they can make for a great occasional break in your diet routine. Crayfish is a great source of Vitamins B3 and B12 as well as the minerals Phosphorus, Selenium and Copper. Just when you thought this little sea creature didn’t have anything left to give Crayfish are also a good source of the mineral zinc which is really important for our production of cells (Men note: zinc also helps with male reproductive health).
