      Made for the Agents of QUEST 2014 and served as a starter course for a family dinner, this soup was superb! 1 guest was known to have a big appetite and there were 2 teenagers, so I wanted to be sure I had enough. I also wanted to lighten it as there was a heavy meal ahead. So I expanded it and lightened it. I accomplished both by using an amt = to the cream(s) amt of my homemade lobster stock and by doubling a mixed seafood blend of crab, baby shrimp and mussels. I did omit the salt as DH is salt-restricted, but I added Old Bay Seasoning which we favor in seafood soups. The economy of Iceland relies on seafood and I plan to rely on your recipe to showcase it. Thx for sharing this tasty soup recipe w/us.

      LOVE this recipe.. I just alter it a little. I add 2 cans of corn, a can of tiny shrimp, and a whole scallion right to the soup. I only use jumbo lump crab meat, and it is absolutely out of this world! Oh, and white pepper! That is my secret ingredient that everyone loves!!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!!!

      Excellent start for me. Sauteed celery and carrot with the onion. Use 2 cups chicken stock and simmered until vegetables softened. Used leftover king crab legs instead of canned. Also seasoned with Old Bay as suggested. Left out the extra flour to thicken. Finished with 2 Cups heavy cream. More like a chowder instead of bisque. Loved the result, delicious. 4 stars for the recipe; 5 stars for technique and inspiration. Thanks!
