What is crayfish powder and how is it made?

Crayfish powder is a type of seasoning made from dried and ground crayfish. It is typically used as a flavor enhancer in cooking, particularly in African and Cajun cuisine. The powder is made by first cleaning and boiling crayfish, then drying them in the sun or using a dehydrator. The dried crayfish are then ground into a fine powder. The resulting product has a strong, umami-rich flavor and is used to add depth and complexity to dishes like soups, stews, and sauces.
