Excellent! Very easy to prepare and delicious. this recipe is a keeper. No substitutions are necessary. You could add slightly more sherry but it really is not necessary. Would suggest serving with a very light menu.
I like the recipe but find it actually works better as a seafood bisque rather than crab. I used crawfish meat and shrimp and it was delicious. I also prefer to use cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom. I recommend the "tomato soup with roasted herbs" or the "cream of chicken with herbs" and just a little less pepper.
I followed the recipe to a T, but it seemed very runny and had a strong taste of tomato. Next time, I'll try it without the tomato soup. It was good though, but it didn't taste like crab bisque.
