I made this soup last night for dinner. What a treat. Very delicious and different from other crab soups I have tried. No rich and cream based, but savory and tomato based in flavor. My husband and I both loved the Old Bay seasoning and used all 1 1/2 tablespoons. Thanks Dancer^.
We enjoyed this! I used 1 tbsp of Old Bay and most of us still found it a bit spicy. I think next time I would use petite diced tomatoes, but the flavor was very good. Thank you for the recipe! Will make this again!
Since moving from the East coast, I've missed the tomato basedMaryland Crab Soup. Since driving 1100 miles for soup is a bit far, I decided to see if I could make it. Your recipe looked close, so I tried it. Oh my...I could close my eyes and transport myself to the shore. It was wonderful. Best of all it takes very little time to prepare. I will definitely make this again and again. The only thing Idid not havewas the seasoned rice wine vinegar. I used red wine vinegar and water instead - worked great. Thanks for posting this recipe!
I used the full amount of Old Bay and it was just a smidge too much for us. I added some corn for color, texture and taste. Also, I used those crab fresh packets (like the tuna). It totally disintegrated into individual strands. Next time I'd add the crab at the end. BUT there WILL be a next time. Thanks, Dancer.
Followed the recipe to a tee and used the full amount of Old Bay. the soup was deliciuos with a nice kick to it. Thank you Dancer^.
Best Maryland crab soup recipe out there! I changed it by starting with boiling med. diced celery, onion, and carrot in leftover crab broth for 15 min. and then proceeded with recipe. The crab broth is the leftover broth (I freeze it) from steaming blue crabs or other seafood (or in a pinch, I use crab boil or Old Bay in water. )
