This soup was wonderful. I made it once exactly as shown. Then, craving tomato soup I did not have any more crab. I left out the crab and blended two large roasted red peppers in the blender and added it in with the tomato juice. It was like a roasted red peper & tomato bisque. Great recipe, thank you.
This soup is very, very good if you like the tomato based crab soups. Only thing I do different is use actual King Crab legs and/or lobster meat if I want that too. This is my favorite recipe I've found on this site so far!! MMM.
This was good, but since I just got back from Hilton Head where I was served some fabulous she-crab soup (which is why I wanted to come back home and try to recreate that taste)I had something professional to compare this to. I used canned crab, but it just didn't have that authentic crab taste. Next time, I will try fresh shredded crab. Thank you for posting. Even though it wasn't what I expected, it was still hot, creamy and smooth. A good addition to our meal.
