The only reason why I rated this recipe with four stars is because there is so much more the preparer can do with it to increase the flavor and texture! Like others, I added Old Bay seasoning and sauteed garlic and the onion. I happened to have Cauliflower in my refrigerator that I steamed and chopped to thicken and provide additional texture. In addition, I added a cup of sweet frozen corn, a can of petite diced potatoes, and a pinch of freshly dried thyme. It turned this soup into a great tasting chowder that is typically found in restaurants! Don't be afraid to customize this recipe to your liking with additions like the ones mentioned above. Just a side note, I do believe the flavor of the soup is compromised when using imitation crab meat instead of canned or fresh blue claw crab meat. Most likely I'm partial, since growing up eating crabs on the east coast!
