This is the real deal! A labour of love, but sooo worth the time! I used the eggs instead of the roe & it was wonderful. Thanks for posting!

We love this recipe! The only changes I made were the following: adding a couple more dashes of salt and pepper, 2-3 dashes of cajun powder and I added the wine directly to the soup right before serving, rather than in the bowl. Delicious!

Great recipe. Referring to review posted on April 21,2009, in the recipe roe and eggs are one and the same. Crab eggs, so to speak.

I am originally from Charleston and this is very close to a magnet from market street with the recipe. IT cannot be she crab without the roe! I have found you can buy roe on the internet. Thank you for posting such a authentic recipe! Charleston is known for She Crab Soup and very few can comapare! No true "southerner" would substitute a canned soup to make this recipe for their quests! My magnet has some variations but I also own 2 Receipts cookbooks and know the recipe posted. Bravo to you for keeping it true to form!
