Method

 
Fire up the braai.
Keep crayfish whole in their shells but cut through the middle of the tail shell so that your garlic butter basting can get in there to flavour the flesh.
Mix together your melted butter, garlic and lemon juice and baste the tails of each crayfish.
Place the crayfish shell side down over hot coals and baste continuously with your butter mixture.
Your crayfish won't take more than a few minutes a side to cook, time depending on their size.

Serve with crusty bread, garlic and lemon butter mixture and a light green salad.
