I hadnt eaten it for many years until the other day, and I had forgotten how nice it was.
Similar to crab only there was more meat in it, and what a delight eating with fingers as per the article link!!
I love most seafoods.

I have always known yabbies to be the little crustaceans found in lakes.. and yes I have eaten those.

The one you are holding Finy, I have known as Balmain Bugs... and I also adore those.
I think they are the same taste -the B. Bug is larger?
by Finy
They certainly look the same Finy.
Such lovely sweet flesh. I really need to get to the fish markets again.
Hahaha! I thought it was a Spanner Crab.

We used to go yabbying, or crawbobbing as some people like to call it in the dam at my grandparents house. I think they sent us out to keep us occupied because all we were equipped with was a bucket, a string line with a piece of meat attached and a small net to scoop them up once we lured them to the shore.
We used to bring home what I considered to be a yabby feast, we'd boil them up and eat them straight from the pot.
They were mean and cranky and you had to watch out they didn't bite you with those nasty claws but crawbobbing is some of my favourite childhood memories.
Well, looking at the photo, I now have no idea. For one who does not like fish, I am a bit odd, as I like lobster and Moreton Bay Bugs. I had the idea that yabbies were tiny . . . but what would a fish disliking Pom know?! LOL

Maybe one day, I hope. :)
I have never tried yabby

I haven't eaten yabbies, but I have seen them in a dam, somewhere in S.A. near Oodnadatta, in about 2000. I have eaten a Balmain Bug, many years ago, & it was indeed yummy. Someone sent me some photos in an email of a large dam of yabbies, but I've never learnt how to put a photo into an email!, but Rice tried to explain it to once!

I have but not fussed on it. Would rather have the Balmain Bug as pictured which tastes much nicer. I often buy the frozen bug meat from Black Wattle Bay fish markets. That way I have it on hand and it works out to be more cost effective than buying the cooked ones.
Yabbies to me are little tiny crustaceans that are used as bait on a hook. The crustacean you are holding looks a bit like a Moreton Bay Bug to me. Funny isn't it to learn the different names we have for similar creatures.
I have eaten Moreton Bay Bugs and they are tasty.
My sister used to catch blue clawed Crawchies, no idea of spelling sorry, in her fresh water dam in Central Qld. They were pleasant texture and fairly bland flavour , that took on the flavour of the sauce. They looked like a big yabbie.
Crawchy- is the correct spelling, I think. About 20cm long.

No. I have never seen a yabby or a B Bug.

As a child I ate yabbies when my cousin caught them from the river at the back of Grandma's place. Delicious. Haven't had a yabby in such a long time.
No,I've never eaten yabbie before, but I have had crab and crayfish,I didn't pay for the crayfish, one of our friend's caught it while fishing.
I used to have yabbies as pets and did not eat them. I love Balmain bugs though.
No. Hahaha, Finy, that looks like it's going to get messy!
