Yes you can. However it is best to introduce new foods to your child one at a time so if child has an allergic reaction you can easily know which food the child is reacting to. In your case you may introduce crayfish for a some days, if no reaction then you introduce groundnuts and so on. If baby has no adverse reaction then you can mix all and give at once.
