This soup is like a chowder and is delicious. I am a soup lover and have developed or modified over 150 soup recipes to make them taste much better.

Chef Bill-I am Chef #718230's friend who hosted the dinner party and served your soup in bread bowls (homemade from scratch of course)--I totally agree it was AMAZING! I used a blend of snow and king crab that I shelled myself to add to the quality of this dish. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was, and relatively easy to make, especially if I had used imitation or canned. Thank you!
Chef Bill! Your crabmeat and corn soup was delightful bonus during my friends dinner party. It was a perfect blend of creamy and sweet. It was served in a bread bowl to add execution to the course. Thank you, this recipe is going in my recipe box for cold winter days to come.
Delicious, Heart-warming soup! I used 12 oz of imitation crab meat and it was perfect! My grocer's parsley looked gross, so I skipped the parsley but didn't miss it. I must say I was hesitant to use soy sauce in a comfort food recipe because I've never used it in anything buy Asian dishes, but it is perfect. I also used Trader Joe's frozen corn which we think is the sweetest, closest to fresh corn out there. Thanks William, I will definitely make this one again!
