Recipe by Bone Man
READY IN: 45mins




  • Melt the butter in a small sauté pan. Add the onions, stirring constantly over medium heat for 1 minute. Then whisk in the flour and continue stirring until onions begin to brown slightly and remove from heat. Set this roux aside.
  • In a cooking pot over medium heat, pour in the chicken stock and add the potatoes. Boil, covered, until tender.
  • When the potatoes are tender, mash them in the stock a bit and then add in the cabbage, carrots, parsley, kosher salt, oregano, the jalapeño slice, and seasoned salt. Bring it to a medium boil, covered and cook until carrots are just tender.
  • After carrots are tender, add in the butter roux and stir, (The broth will thicken), then add the zucchini, cover, and allow it to cook at a low boil for 3 minutes.
  • Next, add the crabmeat, the half and half, and the white pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover and allow it to come to a low boil. Once it begins to boil again, remove the cover and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently so it doesn't scorch on the bottom.
  • Serve hot.
