The sauce brings out the flavor in the stone crab. For those who find the flavor comes on a little too strong, a reduction to one half a tablespoon of dry mustard powder will result in a milder sauce, allowing the sweet flavor of the crab meat to really break through.

I have been using this recipe since I got it from Joe's Restaurant about 10 years ago. It is fabulous for all fish. I have made 4 batches this month. The original recipe calls for Coleman's dry mustard, A1 steak sauce, Lea & Perrins worchestercire sauce and Hellman's mayo. I always use the branded products. I find the mustared sauce makes it too spicey for my taste. I now put a dash of Old Bay seasoning in it that makes it great. If you use the dry mustard, just use less than half a teaspoon unless you want your sauce to have a real kick. Milk will work fine in place of half & half, but the sauce wll not be as rich and smooth. I made a batch this evening with staght cream and it was fantastc!

Used this for fried shrimp. It was good but maybe I didn't let it sit long enough because the flavors seemed a little sharp and not quite like I remember from Joe's. It's good though.

Love this recipe! Couldn't remember how to make Joe's sauce, here it is. I took the advice of a couple chefs and halved the dry mustard--came out great. THX.

Liked this recipe..used 1 TBSP regular ground mustard( didn't have coleman) added a little more worcestershire and about a tablespoon of dijon mustard, because I really didnt taste much mustard. Really good!
foodie December 30, 2010 COMMENT: To those that stated the sauce was bitter, you must let it mellow in the fridge for a few hours before serving. It makes all the difference in the world!

This was as close as it gets to the real thing. Using the Coleman's Dry Mustard makes all the difference in the world!

I squeeze a lime in my sauce as well. Idea given to me by the gentleman who used to sell stone crabs at Scotty's Market (no longer there) in Coconut Grove.

Like the recipe but use 1/2 tablespoon of dry Colemans Mustard instead of the 1 tablespoon, as the recipe calls for, which makes it much nicer and not bitter.

Thank you for sharing your delicious mustard sauce. Just like being there.
Guest Foodie May 17, 2007 COMMENT: I've had this recipe for years but it is too bitter. I added more A-1 than worcestershire, probably double the amount and also a pinch of sugar. You have to play with it until it's to your own taste. Also used half and half. i serve it with my crab cakes.

I cant say that this was even close to Joe's. We were not able to eat this. It was very bitter...
