Stone Crab Claws

Florida Stone Crab Season Oct 15-May 15

What did you have for dinner this week?  Well, I’m on my second stick of butter and I’m only half way through the bag of stone crab claws that was delivered right from the boat.  When I mentioned my connections for air boating, swamp buggying and canoeing I totally forgot about the crab claws in my fridge.

When someone says they know someone that fishes or crabs and they ask if you want to buy some fresh off the boat you always have to say yes. I said yes and will probably eat my way to a heart attack from the butter. 

In case you’re interested, I found this great article on sweet Florida Crab Claws and the harvesting of crab claws. 

If you’re looking for a place to get fresh stone crab claws in the Bonita Springs, Florida area try one of these local favorites:

Randy’s Fish Market Restaurant, Rodes Seafood Restaurant and Market and

Big Hickory Seafood Grille.  Big Hickory has waterfront dining and is accessible by boat or car.
