    MsPia's Note:

    I can't remember where I got this recipe from, the clipping is in pretty bad condition, I think it was and old, old, old William Sonoma catalogue. I love it because is so easy and fast to make but it tastes like if you were slaving on the stove all day.

      Wonderful soup! I used all FF half and half but only 4 oz. crab and the other 4 oz. shrimp. DH had 3 big bowls, so he loved it too.

      A friend and I made this last night and it was delicious! We used a combination of Shitake and white mushrooms. Instead of the half-n-half, we used whole milk, and instead of a green bell pepper, we used a red. There's a tiny little bowl leftover and I'm sure it'll be gone today!

      You got another PAC winner here, MsPia! I wanted to make a full recipe using 1/2 lb of crabmeat so I also used 1/2 lb Icelandic baby shrimp. The only other chg I made was to use all milk & I found it plenty rich & creamy w/o the half & half. The creaminess combined w/the textural veggie adds + seafood makes it almost more of a chowder for me. The Lemon Blend seasoning & hot sauce give it a kick that reminds me a bit of Cajun fare. This was a real winner for us in all ways ... delicious flavor, hearty & warming on a cool Icelandic nite. Thx for sharing this keeper w/us. :-)
