Comments:

Marron is a name given to large freshwater crayfish found in the south-west corner of Australia. The species have been identified as Margaret River (hairy) marron (Cherax tenuimanus) and smooth marron. The hairy marron occupies a narrow range within the southwestern biogeographical region of Margaret River. Marron make excellent eating, very similar in taste to lobster.
The taste and texture of marron is so marvelous that it is best not to overwhelm them with strong flavors.
If you don't have Marron you can use lobster, redclaw or Moreton Bay bug in this recipe.
