Chilled Stone Crab Claws With A Hearts Of Palm Salad

Servings: 4


  1. In a small nonreactive saucepan, combine the sugar, vinegar, and fruit juice, bring to a boil, and cook till reduced by three-fourths, or possibly the mix has thickened like syrup. Remove from the heat and pour the mix into a small glass bowl. Let cold completely.
  2. Slice each heart of palm into thin strips. In a mixing bowl, combine the hearts of palm, onions, peppers, tangerine segments, tarragon and spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Toss with sufficient extra virgin olive oil to moisten the salad. In another mixing bowl, toss the crab claws with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. To serve, mound the hearts of palm salad in the center of each plate. Lay a couple of the crab claws around the salad. Drizzle the entire plate with the Gastrique. Garnish with parsley.
  4. This recipe yields 4 servings.
