Crab Stew

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Gloria 15x

I live on an island in Florida and have a lot of fresh crabmeat in the summer. This is one of my families favorite soups. Its creamy and spicy and definitely NOT low calorie. I have never tried it but I think it would be good with shrimp too.

I've been making Crab Stew for years, but decided to change it up this time and tried your recipe. It was outstanding. I used 1lb of lump crabmeat and 1lb of claw meat. I used 2 cups of 2% milk and 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream, along with a cup of Fat Free Half n Half. I added 1 bottle of Clam Juice, which just kicks up the flavor. I also like it a little bit thicker, so I mixed a tablespoon or so of Corn Starch with some Sherry and added. Best ever!!
