Adapted from Best of the Best of Georgia. A recipe supposedly from Elizabeth of 37th restaurant. A nice way to serve this is in hollowed out individual bread rounds as bowls.

What a workout! But worth it in the end! Thanks to those who reviewed before me, I did assemble my ingredients prior to starting and it made it a lot easier. I also added extra carrots, and about one teaspoon of minced garlic (I love the stuff). I also used fresh chicken stock, it didn't need extra salt but I added a good dose of Old Bay for an extra kick. Super yummy!

This was an amazing dish! Very big hit with the family and friends. The only things I changed were to put more carrots in it for more color and I used regular chicken broth and butter instead of unsalted because it was a little bland the first time I made it. Definitely going in my recipe box!

Good bisque. I made it just as directed, and it did not come close to feeding 12 people. More like 5-6 servings for medium eaters. No one was really 'blown away' by it, but it was quite good. I used king crab that I cooked myself. Thanks!
