Yummy! I made some changes but followed the basic recipe. I added more milk to thin it out. I added more of all the spices listed just because I like more spice to it. Thanks for sharing! :o)

Tasty, but it ain't She Crab Soup without crab roe. That's what makes the "crab" soup a "she crab" soup. Those who catch and cook their own carbs know what crab roe is, it's the orange mass that is inside (and sometimes bulging outside) female crabs.
