The meat of Florida stone crabs--found in the claws--is firm and sweet with a nice briny flavor. It’s delicious in a chilled seafood salad.
The crab claws are usually sold cooked and found in the frozen section in seafood markets. Once the crab meat is removed from the claws and tossed with shrimp for this salad, it breaks up, acting almost like a loose binder.
For an attractive presentation, spoon the salad into large, clean seashells. Sprinkle a bit of freshly ground pepper over the top for a finishing touch. This salad would be nice accompanied with avocado slices and ripe tomato wedges
