How to enjoy our Stone Crab Claws
To begin, the Stone Crab Claws must first be cracked open using a mallet or another heavy instrument. Towels or cloths are advised during this process to stop shells from scattering. The mallet should lightly tap both sides of the Stone Crab claw’s knuckle in order to break into the meat. Avoid smashing too hard to prevent small shell fragments from ending up in the consumable part of your product.

What’s the Cost of Stone Crab Claws?
The price of our Stone Crab Claws varies based on two key factors, the first and foremost being the current season. As supply goes down, the price goes up and as an effect during certain times of the year, there won’t be any claws in stock.
Secondly, the size of the claw. The larger the claw of the crab, the more meat there will be for consumption. For this reason, larger claws from older crabs are greatly sought after, thus yielding their higher price points.

What are Claw Floaters?
When the crab shell is growing up a size, the shell is still thin and hasn’t quite filled with meat yet. The air pocket, combined with the thin shell, allows the claws to float to the top of the pot when they are being cooked, giving them their nickname.
They come in a mixed bag of sizes, and the thinner shell means you’re paying for less shell AND they are easier to crack open. It’s a bit of a gamble on how much meat you are getting, but it’s definitely a local favorite and a great deal on fresh crab!
