STOP, HOLD THE PRESS . . . oh my goodness, this soup was the BEST. I plan on serving it at a dinner party. My 95 year old father-in-law thought it was wonderfult. My husband said "This soup is wicked!" (That means extremely good) . Praises to the person who shared with recipe. Thank you.
AMAZING!! It was my first attempt trying crab soup and it turned out great. I added about 1/4 cup of Sherry at the end and it was perfection!
My man has mentioned he would love oysters in this soup, sounds great!
Great tasting and easy to make.
This soup has a very good flavor. I used 6 ounce foil packets of crab instead of canned crab.
