Buy Jumbo Jonah Crab Cocktail Claws Online
Local Mainers love Jonah crab and after your first order of Jumbo Jonah Crab Cocktail Claws, you’ll understand why. Jonah crab is similar in flavor to other crab species like blue crab or Dungeness crab, but still maintains a sweet, tender meat that’s great on its own, or served with lemon, butter, or cocktail sauce. Our Jumbo Jonah Crab Cocktail Claws come in a 1 lb. package and are cut cap-off for a no-hassle dining experience. Put away those crab crackers, because these cocktail claws are the easiest way to enjoy Jonah crab!
Responsibly Harvested Jonah Crab Meat
At Maine Lobster Now, we know the long-term sustainability of seafood products is an issue deeply connected to Maine and other coastal communities all across the world. In order to offer you Jonah crab meat today and in the future, we work only with fisheries that follow all local, federal, and international rules and regulations to responsibly harvest Jonah crab to ensure continued access to these crustaceans for future generations.
Unmatched Quality and Freshness
Crabmeat offered at Maine Lobster Now is the freshest, tastiest it can be for our customers. Jonah crab is caught in the cold waters of the North Atlantic and immediately cooked when docked. Our Jonah crab claws and leg meat are then flash-frozen to seal in freshness before it’s shipped to us. You won’t find Jonah crab meat that is more fresh unless you drive a boat out into the ocean and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend).
Maine Lobster Now takes great pride in responsibly sourcing Jonah crab meat to help maintain crab populations for generations to come. 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.
What’s the Serving Size for Jumbo Jonah Crab Cocktail Claws?
Your order of 1 lb. of Jumbo Jonah Crab Cocktail Claws will come cap-off and ready to eat once thawed. Due to the size variations of Jonah crabs, 1 lb. can include anywhere from 8-12 cocktail claws to be served at dinner or an event. Using a standard 3 oz. serving size, 1-2 cocktail claws per person should be plenty for a serving.
This recommendation could vary depending on what you’re serving. Jonah crab cocktail claws could be the main protein entrée for a meal if you’re serving some classic New England side dishes, like red potatoes or corn on the cob. Or they could serve as the appetizer for a live lobster feast. Perhaps you want a small main course to leave room for dessert? You can always add a Maine-iac Chocolate Whoopie Pie or Maine Pie Co. Blueberry Pie to your order as well.

Nutritional Benefits of Jonah Crab Meat
Crabmeat 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. Crabmeat offers a whopping 16 grams of protein per 3 oz. serving.
Crabmeat 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. Crabmeat 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.
