2 teaspoons paprika
1 pound cooked Atlantic Blue crab meat, divided

Carefully put the crabs in the pot and continue to cook for another 15 minutes. The crab shells will be bright orange when done. Remove and shell the crabs. Strain the stock to discard the vegetable solids, reserving the crab meat and stock.

Curried Cream of Crab Soup image

Received in am email - created by David Jarrett. Like the sound of this variation of classic crab soup (something we love here) - the milk rather than cream will lighten it up a bit & the curry provides a nice complement to the crab. Of course we'll be using our "home grown" blue crab (- the best in the world IMAO LOL!) so I will be stashing this recipe to try later in the year when our own crabs are plentiful & heavy (so the picking won't be so arduous). A fresh green salad and crusty bread together with the soup makes a nice meal. Thanks David.

Award-Winning Maryland Cream of Crab Soup image

This recipe is credited to Ms. Charlese Smith and is the Grand Prize Winner in the Soup Division of the 53rd Annual National Hard Crab Derby held in Crisfield, MD. It is very rich - not a diet soup!! I make this with one cup grated onion sauteed in the butter until very soft to start, before adding the milk and cream, but I didn't want to add that below as this is the original recipe.

Kk's Cream of Crab Soup image

As a Maryland native growing up, crab was always plentiful, available and fresh - usually caught that day. Today I buy fresh lump or jumbo lump crab for this soup, depending on the audience. Using a lesser grade of crab won't give you the premium results you are probably seeking.

Categories     Crab

Time 35m

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 lb backfin crab meat
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons onions, chopped very fine
1/3 cup flour
1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth (don't use a heavy stock)
1/2 cup dry sherry (very dry sherry should be pale yellow in color)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
3 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
8 -9 dashes Tabasco sauce
8 -9 dashes of a less vinegary hot sauce (such as Texas Pete's or Frank's)
1 pinch cayenne (just a very light shake!)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon tomato paste (use concentrated, it comes in a tube)


  • Gently remove cartilage from crab meat.
  • Melt butter in a 2-3 quart sauce pan.
  • Add the onion and cook 3-4 minutes - until translucent.
  • Blend in flour and cook as a roux on medium-low heat until the flour-butter mixture "loosens", which indicates the flour is cooked (about 5 minutes).
  • Off the heat, stir in chicken broth and sherry, return to the heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Add salt, pepper, milk and cream, then stir in Tabasco, cayenne and sugar.
  • Use a little of the liquid to thin the tomato paste and stir it back into the soup.
  • Cook on med-low heat until thickened, but do not let it boil.
  • Taste it, and when the cream base is cooked and seasoned to your liking, add the crab.
  • Heat gently another 5 minutes and serve.
  • Serving suggestion: make a lightly sweetened whipped cream to dollop on top and serve with a small pitcher of the sherry to add at the table.
  • A small amount of fresh chopped parsley around the edge of a soup plate is attractive, but don't use too much because you don't want to affect the flavor of the soup.
