THE BEST!!! Absolutely wonderful. I made it the first time using the full amount of wine that the recipe called for and found it a bit strong but still had a to die for taste. My fiance was hooked. He asked me to make it 3 more times in a 2 week period! I found if you cut the wine in 1/2 it is perfect. So easy and just so good. Serve with some crusty sourdough and eat in front of the fire ... Heaven!
I added extra crabmeat, but used the same amount of wine in the recipie. I thought it needed less wine. Next time, I'll use half. This is a nice easy soup when you don't have time to make it from scratch.
I love this recipe! I have made it for my family several times and my in-laws request it over and over. They love it. I double the amount of crab and add Old Bay seasoning.
I made this bisque for the first course of a formal sit down dinner. Everyone loved it, & people asked for the recipe. I used approx. 2lbs of fresh lump crabmeat instead of canned & also ran the hand/food processor through it. I would use a low sodium soup though, it does have that condensed/sodium soup taste. But, overall very good & I'll make it again.
This soup was very good, but I did listen to others about the wine. I added a 1/2 cup while the soup ingredients were warming and then not quite another 1/2 cup at the end when the directions said to add the wine. I cup of wine was plenty! I also sauteed some shallots first and then started the rest of the directions. Our only complaint was that it was too thin. Will probably use a little less milk next time, but there will certainly be a next time. Thanks for the recipe!
Added 1/2 cup of wine along with the milk/cream and let that cook down a bit. Then added the other 1/2 cup of wine with the crab meat. It was perfect. This is a must keep in our house.
Great soup, I added 3/4 tsp old bay seasoning as suggested and 2 Tsp of tomatoe paste for a pink color for presentation.
Very nice, my family enjoyed it. The only change I'd make is: I only added 1 cup of wine, and I had to let it cook down a bit, as the aroma nearly knocked me and my fiance over. Other than that, it was a wonderful New Year's day dish!
