In the Kitchen: Savory Mustard Sauce for Stone Crabs

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is one of my favorite times of the year, stone crab season! With the start of the season on October 15th, I had to visit my favorite place for stone crabs, Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant. Celebrating their 100th year anniversary, Joe’s Stone Crab is as iconic restaunt in South Beach, a place where locals and tourists dine with celebrities. But I do not come for the celebrity gawking, I come for the claws and their world famous mustard sauce. Joe’s has two options for dining, the fine dining at the restaurant where they do not take RSVP so wait times can easily exceed an hour due to popularity, or a quick service option next door at Joe’s Stone Crab Take-Away, where they serve the same stone crabs at the same price. If you want a low key place to have amazing stone crabs, Joe’s Take-Away is the place.

The stone crabs are caught fresh daily and come in different sizes and quantities: 7 medium claws just under 1 pound, 6 select claws (which are an assortment of medium and large claws) at 1 pound, 5 large claws at 19-20 ounces, and 3 jumbo claws at 22-24 ounces, all at market price. All come with dinner rolls, melted butter, and the mustard sauce. The stone crabs are succulent, and the house made mustard completes it. I absolutely love their mustard, I use it on sandwiches all the time. Their not so secret recipe is readily available… check it out below!

3 1/2 Teaspoons Coleman’s Dry English Mustard
1 Cup Mayonnaise
2 Teaspoons Lea & Perrins
1 Teaspoon A.1. Sauce
1/8 Cup Light Cream
1/8 Teaspoon Salt

First add English Mustard and mayonnaise and beat for a minute. Then add remaining ingredients and beat until mixture is a creamy consistency.

Joe’s Stone Crab will remain open thru the stone crab season, which ends mid-May so make sure you stop by. Happy eats!
