This makes very delicious and also pretty soup. I had some frozen, raw Pacific crab, and decided to try it. I didn't have as much asparagus as called for, so made up the difference with little brown mushrooms (shimeji). I also substituted red onion for the shallots. Used homemade chicken stock. I'm very happy with the result. Thank you very much for another lovely recipe.
