Marron for lunch

On our way to our next stop after leaving Boat Harbour after the horse endurance ride, we stopped for lunch at Nornalup on the Frankland River and lashed out on marron for lunch. Marron is a freshwater crayfish which is farmed commercially in the area. The marron weren’t particularly big but we had prawns, mashed potato and a vegetable conglomeration with it. Taken with a glass of chilled white wine, it was very acceptable.

It looks really good. Seafood of any kind is always a healthy choice.

Is Chowders a cream type soup? That's what came up when I looked it up.

@rebelann Yes, it's basically a soup with seafood in it.

I recently discovered chowders and now I often ordered that if it's on the menu.

@Nawsheen It's probably close to lobster or crayfish.

@thelme55 Is there a particular reason why you haven't had them in so long?

Looks good. I've never been a fan of shrimp or crayfish. I'm more of a lobster, clam, scallop and crab fan.

I thought crayfish and lobster were the same. I think they pretty much are here. I am really keen on scallops too.

@JudyEv The crayfish are much smaller and have a different taste.

When I still wasn't fully vegetarian, this is something that I would have ordered.

the food looks delicious. Does this fish survive in sea water?

No, it's a freshwater variety.

That's the first I've heard of marron. It looks like a cross between lobster and the crawfish we have here.

I'm sure you're right. It seems to be just the size that varies between them all.

Not heard of a marron, but I guess they are like crayfish in general
