She Crab Soup


One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday morning is to sit in bed, watching something on the history channel looking up new recipes to try.  Recently I came across a recipe for she-crab soup and thought it looked delicious but could use a few more ingredients so I thought I would do some research on other she-crab soup recipes and create my own.  Here is that recipe!

She Crab Soup

1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons flour
2 cup milk
3 tablespoons margarine
1 green onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 cup fish stock
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 cup sherry
2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 lb crab meat

Melt butter over medium low heat. 
Add chopped green onions (I didn't have green onions so I used a white onion and chives).  Cook for about 4 minutes.  Add flour and cook and stir for about 2 minutes.   Stir in stock, milk, and cream.  Bring to simmer.  

Add crab meat, sherry, salt, and pepper and heat through.  I add a little more sherry, just cause I want to.  

Pour into bowls and garish with Paprika.  
Pin It!
