around 2 &1/2 minutes per pound and then plunge in cold water to stop it continuing to cook

Longer than 5 mins unless you like your crayfish semi raw. 12-15mins is my yardstick. Ensure that the entire shell has turned from the dark browny colour to a bright orange - the entire shell.

If I steam them in my bamboo steamer (good for cooking lots) then 15-20mins.
