If you're lucky enough to be able to get your hands on some succulent stone crab claws, then you're in for a treat. The best advice on reheating stone crab claws is DON'T! Stone Crab Claws are cooked on the boat or at the dock shortly after they are harvested. They are best enjoyed cold with a mustard sauce of your choosing. See Joes's recipe below.

Here’s a video showing you how to crack the claws after preparation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YHHdeokqKY  Serve the stone crab claw meat immediately to prevent it from drying. Accompany with liquid butter or cocktail sauce  for dipping.
Every 2½ pounds of stone crab claws will yield about 1 pound of stone crab meat. Keep this in mind when buying to ensure you purchase enough to serve everyone
