Went to a local gourmet food store, "Green Turtle" and started saving my funds for a meal in the near future with some steak or whatever the budget allows after the crabs. $$$20 and up/pound depending on size

These are just mediums and large size.

After sticker shock think the large were $24.95/lb, I picked myself off the floor.

Stone crab is available for harvest between October 15th and May 15th. Native to Florida's Gulf coast, these rare crabs have the unique ability to regenerate their claws and limbs. These delicious claws are always in high demand and are widely regarded as one of the forms of fresh Florida Seafood. Claws are cooked daily when gathered in boiling water for 7-10 minutes and cooled to prevent the meat from sticking to the shell. They are then sorted into four sizes: medium, large, jumbo, and colossal.
" Medium: 6-8 claws per pound
" Large: 4-5 claws per pound
" Jumbo: 3 claws per pound
" Colossal: 1-2 claws per pound

  • What do you roll them up in when you smoke 'em?  Ha ha!  I wish I knew what I was doing with seafood.  My experience with seafood preparation is choosing them from the menu.

    I eat them cold with a lemon butter sauce or the famous Joe's Crab sauce.

    Crab, Claws, Stone, Sauce, Mustard
     
     
    This is the sauce served at Joe's Stone Crab in Miami. To make an even easier sauce, just mix regular jarred brown mustard to taste into jarred mayonnaise.
     
    INGREDIENTS:  
    1 Tbs    Colman's dry mustard, or to taste  
    1 cup    mayonnaise  
    2 tsp    Worcestershire sauce  
     
    1 tsp    A-1 Sauce  
    1/4 cup    heavy cream or milk  

      Salt to taste  
     
    Procedure:
    1 Place the mustard in a small mixing bowl. Whisk in the mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, A-1 Sauce, cream and a pinch of salt. Mix until well blended and creamy. If you'd like a little more mustardy bite, whisk in about 1/2 teaspoon more dry mustard. Chill the sauce, covered, until serving. Makes about 1 cup.

  • Absolutely my favorite! I had planned on putting out a few recreational traps but have not found the time to make the run. Prices have gone through the roof but they are soooo good!
