Stone Crab Claws and Pasta – Episode 14By
Needed to come up with a quick dinner as I was running late so I spotted these great Stone Crab Claws or Rock Crab Claws- Just saw them and said give me a few pounds- So basically this is a great olive oil-butter based sauce for the pasta- In the video I do not show cooking the crab claws but all I did was throw them in the pasta water after the pasta came out- Sorry this is all shot hand held so it looks like I am cooking on the Titanic- you know after the incident.
The wine I opened was a great surprise- 2007 Hess Monterey Chardonnay. What a great wine and for $9 only- I am not a huge Chard fan but this knocked my socks off as such an easy drinking white wine that was not only good chilled but also good as it came to room temp. A great call by Gary Vaynerchuk on this one- normally I do not enjoy his white wine selections as he usually favors some complex or odd flavors but this one nailed it.
