Crayfish, avocado and grapefruit salad

From Cookipedia

A variation of the Prawn and Grapefruit Salad recipe which originated from Nik and Edwina's Cookbook.

A lovely light, zesty, flavoursome alternative to a more traditional prawn cocktail. Crayfish have a little more substance and bite than prawns. This makes a very nice light meal.

Chef's notes

The original recipe also used chopped dill which is a nice addition but not available for us in winter.
