This spicy soup, featuring shrimp, crabmeat and tomatoes, gets its zip from hot pepper sauce and cayenne pepper. It's easy to prepare and dresses up any meal. Of all the recipes I've borrowed from my mom, this soup is the one that I've made most often. -Kevin Weeks North Palm Beach, Florida

MY REVIEW

I have also been making this bisque for years...we love it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 29, 2013

I've been making this soup for years (Since finding this delicious recipe in my TOH magazine!).

It never disappoints. Croutons make a tasty garnish.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 21, 2013

This is one of my favorite soups. When I want to splurge, I use "real," chopped crabmeat, rather than the canned.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2012

I've made this time and time again. One of my favorite recipes. I usually omit the crab, still turns out great. Easy to make and full of flavor.
