Bring the flavors and fun of the Maine coast to your home with an order of Jonah Crab Claws for your next family dinner or dinner party event. Our wild-caught Jonah Crab Claws are a perfect appetizer and are great for dipping in melted butter or cocktail sauce. These crab claws are pre-cooked right at the dock when they come ashore, and flash-frozen to seal in the freshest taste. When thawed, they’re ready to serve alongside your favorite side or drowned in melted butter. These Jonah Crab Claws come triple-scored for easy opening, but you may still want crab shell crackers on hand for an even easier dining experience.
Maine Lobster Now takes tremendous pride in sourcing the highest-quality seafood products to ship them directly to our customers. We adhere to NOAA FishWatch guidance on all sustainably sourced seafood products we offer. Jonah Crab has been sustainably harvested in Maine for generations, but rapidly warming waters have moved much of the population into colder waters just north of our shores. Today, we responsibly source Jonah Crab in the waters of Nova Scotia and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, though we also work with local fisheries in Maine whenever possible.

Nutritional Benefits of Jonah Crab Meat
Crab meat is a high-protein meat source that comes packed with vitamins and minerals. Like other shellfish and seafood we sell, crab could be added to the growing list of “superfoods” health experts recommend.
Crab meat offers a whopping 16 grams of protein per 3 oz. serving. Crab meat also contains vitamins B12 and C, and the antioxidants zinc and selenium. Zinc helps support bone mass and immune function, while selenium aids in preventing cellular damage. And there’s more… Crab meat is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Serving Jonah Crab Claws Is Easy
Our Jonah Crab Claws are already fully cooked by professional fishermen as soon as they are landed at the dock. Once thawed, you can eat the crab meat cold. The crab claws are triple-scored for easy opening, but having crab shell crackers on hand can help to more easily extract the meat.
Heating Jonah crab is easy and fast. It is recommended to only heat the product until warmed through to your desired temperature. Overcooking Jonah crab meat may result in less flavorful meat and an undesired texture.
