Got stone crab claws from farmers market. Husband is no fan of stone crab claws so not sure why he wanted to buy them. Found a crab pasta recipe online so went with that.
Didn’t quite have everything the recipe called for but went for it anyway.
The hardest part was de-crabbing the claws, but luckily not too hard. Needed to get out my crab cracker and crab fork to get all the meat out.
Since I didn’t have lemons on hand, I added some tomatoes for acidity. Also used one of my fatalii peppers from garden. I have one plant that is 3 years old and the heat on the chile seems to mellow each year.
Did have wine, though!
Was out of parsley so just used chives from my garden. Mixed in the pasta.
This was more than the sum of its parts! Now I’m hooked on stone crab claws! Husband raved!
Hopefully I can still find the claws at the farmers market!
