Every year, we wait for it. We wait patiently for the arrival of October 15, a hallowed day on our local calendar. The day fisherman are finally allowed to return to the sea for Florida’s ultimate delicacy—the stone crab. And while lining up at restaurants to devour the famously pink claws is a bona fide Miami ritual, why not try using them at home to create a feast your friends and family won’t soon forget?
To show us just how much can be done with stone crabs—because there is so much more than the mustard sauce!—we asked Sam Gorenstein, the brilliant young chef behind South Beach’s and Brickell’s My Ceviche, to create a special menu for a very special INDULGE lunch. Appropriately so, we hosted the fete aboard a fabulous Ferretti yacht, the perfect backdrop for a meal that celebrates the delicious fruits of our South Florida seas. Read on for the details.
