I served this soup as a starter for a dinner party and it was a major hit, everybody loved it.We had been out that morning and caught our own crabs from the estuary, fresh is best.. thanks for the great recipe

Very tasty, although hubby didn't like it because it tasted too much like a bisque for him.
