    Looks like I may be the only one who isn't blown away by this recipe. I tried it because it looked simple. Indeed, the end result did not quite taste like the crab bisque I usually have in restaurants. The only thing that made it taste like crab bisque was the sherry. I feel that it lacks something but still have not quite found out what it is lacking. I won't be trying this again.

    This is excellently flavored! It was a great appetizer to a special dinner I prepared for company. I too added in some potatoes just because. Rich and delicious and loaded with crab!

    So yummy! I make this all the time but i lighten it up a bit. I use Fat free milk, fat free half and half, and 2% sharp cheddar and it comes out amazing! I also added a potato to make it more" chowder-like". But over all Awesome recipe! Company loves it too!!

    Great bisque!!! My wife is lactose intolerant so I made some adjustments and added a couple goodies to fill in the sauce. I used 1.5c milk, 2.5c chicken broth and omitted the whipping cream and sherry. I sauteed 1/2c fine chopped onions in the butter, added 1c cooked, diced potatos (red) and 1c white corn to the finished sauce. There were no complaints or leftovers! What a treat!!!

    Absolutely stellar. Added 1 1/2 T. Essence and omitted lemon pepper. Made the entire soup, minus crabmeat, the day before. All I had to do was add crab and heat. Decadent and marvelous.
