Conch is a perennial local seafood favorite. The meat of conch is firm and white and is prepared in a variety of ways including conch chowder, conch stew, conch salad, popular conch fritters, and is also deep fried as "cracked conch".

Key Lime Pie - before milk trucks and before refrigeration. The filling for key lime pie consists simply of a can of sweetened condensed milk, four egg yolks, and a varying quantity of key lime juice and zest. The traditional key lime pie would not be cooked. The acid from the lime juice would set and thicken the egg yolks.

A Cuban dish, enchilado is seafood cooked in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. Serve this with rice and fried plantains.

    Florida Keys Stone Crab

     
     
    Preparing stone crabs is different than other crabs because they are usually not harvested whole. Instead, the largest claw is taken from the crab and then it is thrown back into the water to regenerate a new claw. Stone crab claw are cooked immediately to prevent the meat from sticking to the inside of the shell. As stone crab claws are already cooked, they only need a gentle warming before consuming. However, crab claws can also be eaten cold.

    1/2 c. butter, softened
    1/2 c. crumbled blue cheese
    1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

    Blend ingredients to make 1 cup. Add to the catch of the day.

    The beauty of this prized shellfish with its sweet buttery taste is that all you have to do is bring it home, crack the shell and serve with melted butter - or another type saurce.
