The sauce, cooked shrimp and scallops can be refrigerated separately overnight. The cracked crab claws can be covered and refrigerated overnight.
If you can't get cracked stone-crab claws, you will need to crack them yourself. Working with one crab claw at a time, wrap it in a kitchen towel. Working carefully, lightly crack the crab claw with the back of a knife or a mallet to expose as much of the meat as possible, leaving the pincers attached.
