Yabby Apéritif

Yabby Apéritif

Yabbies are a much cherished delicacy in France, particularly in the Alps region where there are many lakes and streams where yabbies are in abundance.

This way of preparing and presenting yabbies doesn’t take long to put together, yet looks very impressive. The combination of the herbs fried in oil are absolutely delicious.



  • 12 yabbies, partly cooked and peeled
  • 3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 tblsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tblsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 tblsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of herbs d Provence

Avocado paste

  • 1 mashed avocado
  • 1 tblsp lime juice
  • 12 slices of cucumber
