Product Details:

The Gulf of Maine is home to Jonah Crab. For years, lobstermen despised them because they worked their way into the lobster pots to steal the bait. Once freed from the traps they were tossed back into the Atlantic under a shower of curses. Finally, someone had the sense to take them home and put them in the pot.

Turns out that the crabs were delicious, and a cottage industry sprung up in Maine steaming, picking and selling their meat. And it turned out that the larger ones had nice juicy claws that gave the coveted Stone Crab claws from Florida a run for their money (at about half the price).

Today, Jonah crabs have found their niche in the marketplace, and with increasing popularity. Landed fresh year-round, they are harvested inshore and offshore by lobster boats. Their flaky, sweet meat is rich and often compared to the flavor of its Pacific cousin, the Dungeness. Larger crabs are selected especially to be sold as “cocktail” claws, which is the entire arm and claw attached, about 6 to 8 pieces to the pound. They are steamed and frozen immediately to trap it is sweet, ocean flavor – and are ready to be eaten and enjoyed once thawed. Serve them with some tangy seafood cocktail sauce, aioli, hot sauce, or even some drawn butter like you would lobster. Once you crack open the Jonah crab, prepared to be hooked!

Thawing Jonah Crab Claws: When selecting your delivery date for our Jonah Crab Claws, please remember they are shipped frozen, and you will need approximately 24 hours to let them thaw. The most effective way to do this is by placing them in the refrigerator for one day prior to enjoying. If you need them faster, you can thaw at room temp for a few hours, and if you need them right away thaw under running cold water.

Ordered stuffed clams, got crab cakes

I was looking forward to enjoying some tasty stuffed clams but when I opened the package, my 2 I there items were correct but I got 12 crab cakes instead of 12 stuffed clams. Haven't tried them yet but I hope they're good!
