What Do Jumbo Stone Crab Claws Taste Like?
These large stone crab claws are large and sweet. Their sweet and succulent meat has a flaky texture. They taste like a mix of lobster and shrimp.
Stone crab claws are usually cooked like shrimp cocktail. Their shells are cracked, and the meat is served as finger food. The meat can be eaten with a mustard sauce or one wedge of lemon. You can also enjoy steaming hot crab and dip it in melted butter.
The sweetest stone crabs can be found off the coast of Florida on the Gulf Coast. Harvest season opens in October and closes in mid-May.
4 Reasons Why You Need to Buy
If you are new to the “stonies,” here are some of the reasons why you should order them:
- Environmentally friendly harvest: Crab claws are harvested from the crab without killing it. Just one claw is removed, and the crab can return to its habitat. A new claw will be regenerated within 12 to 18 months.
- The claws have a lot of meat: For older crabs, about half of their weight is in their claws. So, eating the claw allows you to enjoy a large amount of crab meat.
- They are harvested locally: All the crab claws we sell are harvested on the coastline of Florida.
- They make great recipes: Apart from eating the cooked claw with mustard source, you can use it to cook a variety of dishes. You can steam, boil, or stir fry crab claws.
