"Recipes are meant to be shared"

It is my intention to add a couple of recipes here every week. Although between working and playing with my daily blog 'Thibeault's Table', I'm not always successful.

She Crab Soup

She Crab Soup
I've been making this recipe for over 30 years. Makes a wonderful first course.

1 quart of milk/cream
6 tablespoons of butter
1/4 small onion
1/2 pound of crab meat
3 oz of roe or 2 hard cooked egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup flour

Heat cream or milk. Melt butter and saute onion. Let simmer until soft and add crabmeat,
egg yolks or roe. Add flour, paprika, cook 3 to 5 minutes. Do not let flour brown. Add hot cream/milk and simmer 20 minutes. Add Sherry. Serve additional sherry at the table for individual taste.

Option: Whip heavy cream and serve a dollop of cream in each bowl of soup.
