Forget two dogs and a cat. When it comes to incredible journeys, the humble crayfish gets my tear ducts going more than any moth-eaten mutt or conceited feline.

Count the food miles. Plucked from the balmy brine of the South China Seas, the crayfish flies to Norway

(surreal or what?) to be processed. Nothing too technical, iust curing in salt water. The Cook’s Tour continues as the smallest Cray brother sails to Auld Reekie - Granton to be precise. Here at longa Fish’s depot, it waits in chilly quarters (29C), swapping reminiscences of sunnier climes with its fellow inmates: tiger prawns from the Indian Ocean; Mediterranean baby octopuses the size of a thumbnail; and the somewhat less chatty, vegetative sea asparagus farmed in the Persian Gulf. Mussels and clams from the cleanest water in Scotland, off the west coast of Lewis, model themselves on T-shirted Geordies, and laugh at the chattering foreign wimps. Which is more than the blue-fingered packers can manage as they retrieve our homesick crayfish and send it on to its final destination.

But by the time Jean-Michel Gauffre, executive chef at the Edinburgh Sheraton hotel, gets his mitts on it, the crayfish will have good reason to feel perky. Who knows what delights lie ahead? Friday night is, after all, fish night. But at the Sheraton, as one might expect, they tend to put on rather more than a fish supper.

In Gauffre’s eyes, this most versatile of fish allows the imagination to run wild. Stir fries or satays are a culinary reminder of the crayfish’s Asian home territory; a more European approach would include it in a paella; its simplicity may be used to best effect in very classical dishes such as thermidor, or just served in garlic butter. Alternatively, if the mood takes him, our lucky crayfish may form part of Gauffre’s layering of ultimate luxury - how does a parcel of salmon, with crayfish mousse and lobster dressing

grab you?

Why so misty-eyed? It’s not so much the creative beauty of it all (although I’ve known grown men cry at a crown roast of lamb). It’s just that after all that incredible journeying, all that appears on the diner’s plate at the Sheraton are the poor crayfishs’ tails. (Gabe Stewart)
