Stone Crab Claws
Stone Crab is a species of crab found in the North Atlantic ocean. This dish is made from the claws of the crab. What makes the crab unique is that once captured, its claws are removed and it is released back into the ocean because it has the ability to regrow its claws. This makes it a very sustainable form of seafood. The claws are best made steamed with some butter and seasoning. Order now from CJ’s Crab Shack or Submarine Crab.
