The Stoned Crab

“The Stoned Lobster” creatively blends three of the Florida Keys’ most iconic seafood species – stone crab, spiny lobster, and Key West pink shrimp – into one mouthwatering, eye-catching dish.

"The Stoned Lobster" is a culinary creation incorporating all three species of fish found in the lobster traps immediately post-Hurricane Irma. The unique dish features two massive stone crab claws placed at the front-end of a whole spiny lobster, finished off with a blend of shrimp stuffing and gravy packed into the lobster tail. In an effort to reuse materials from the storm, the dish is served on the wooden boards of lobster traps that were destroyed in the hurricane. All seafood used in The Stoned Lobster is sourced locally and caught and filleted by Three Hands Fish – a Florida Keys sustainable seafood initiative that directly connects commercial fishermen and their catch with community members and restaurant chefs.
