Joe's Stone Crab

"In the early 1900's, Joe and his wife, Jennie,
discovered an unknown delicacy

and served them chilled, with mustard sauce.
It was the beginning of a tradition."

Stone crabs:
Native to the waters around Florida,
stone crabs are a delicacy only available
from November to May.
Fishermen remove one claw from the crab
and return it to the water.
The claw will regenerate
to full size in about a year.
Usually served chilled.
Stone crab claws were first succesfully prepared
on Miami Beach
