Monster Stone Crab Claw

I caught this monster in West Galveston Bay today. One of the biggest ones I've ever caught. I did not weigh it but it had to be 3/4 of a pound plus...

He tasted great and hopefully well on his way to growing another claw!

Wow!! I’ve never had stone crab. How does it compare to blue crab or snow crab? It looks like some serious shell to get the meat.

It's pretty easy to crack and eat if they are handled correctly. Do not ice or chill before cooking it makes the meat stick to the shell. Boil about 8 mins and eat with some melted butter.

As for the taste? The current price at Joe's Stone Crab House in Florida is 89.95 a pound for Jumbos. People don't pay that kind of money unless they taste spectacular...

$89/lb!!! So that’s about a $70-$75 claw. Guess I’ll stick to my blue/snow crab. Lol. Maybe a bucket list food.

When in season Trulucks is very affordable.

Of course they are not in season right now.

if by "affordable" you mean $15-25 per claw....?
The only time I can enjoy stone claw appetizers at Trulucks is when it's on an expense account.

They have a $90 all you can eat claws on Mondays. Its a pretty good deal, especially if you combine the meals that I skip the next day.

So, if I come across a stone crab and break the claw off, I'm not supposed to chill it? It doesn't spoil in 100F heat?

I keep a small ice chest in my boat with one of those frozen ice packs. So it stays cool but not ice cold. That way they don't spoil but are still easy to crack and clean...
