Three Cheers...Stone Crab Season Is Here!

It's begins stone crab season! I can't wait to sink my teeth into a chilled jumbo claw, dunked in mustard sauce. If you've  never tasted these succulent claws and are up for an adventure, head down to Marathon in the Florida Keys. There you'll find the Keys Fisheries Market and Marina, the supplier of stone crab claws for the famous,  Joe's Stone Crab in Miami Beach, Florida. Beware though before you venture...if your vision of dining out must include waiters in tuxedos, fine china and crystal, you won't find that at Keys Fisheries Market and Marina. People go there for the fresh seafood at a price that can't be beat! Order at the counter, then dine alfresco while savoring the sunset's breath-taking views. It's no fuss dining and worth the trip in my opinion.  If you can't break away for a visit, head over to your local seafood market or purchase stone crabs online.

Although some enjoy them heated with drawn butter, I relish mine chilled with mustard sauce. I'm planning to celebrate the start of the season tonight with a family feast. Why not start your own tradition by having one too? In fact, here's the mustard sauce recipe I found online and love. Now all that's needed are your family, friends and of course...lots of mouthwatering stone crab!

Eat, Drink and Enjoy,
