  • RE: Frenchy's She Crab Soup
    I have two recipes for She Crab Soup.

    This one is from "Maryland Seafood Cookbook II"

    Cream of Crab Soup

    1 pound backfin crab meat
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1/3 cup flour
    1 cup chicken broth
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    5 cups milk
    salt to taste

    Remove cartilage from crab meat. Melt butter in 3 quart pan. Blend in flour and stir until smooth. Slowly stir in chicken broth and pepper and simmer for 2 mins. Add milk and cook slowly, stirring constantly until thickened. DO NOT BOIL. Add crab meat to milk mixture and salt. Makes about 10 cups

    Note: The milk can include a mixture of half and half, whipping cream, skim or regular milk, depending on how rich you want to make the soup.
