This is the first time I made a red base crab soup, and I will definitely be making this again. It is spicy, but I like spicy. Just put less seafood seasoning if you don't like spicy. I added 4 extra cups of water and used Taste of Homes beef stock concentrate. This is a keeper.

Lived in Maryland for a number of years and this is just how I remember crab soup. Recipe needs more liquid. I use a carton of vegetable stock instead of the water.

I have been making crab soup for many years, this recipe is by far the best. I did have to add more liquid to it. I will be using the recipe more, thanks!
