In college I worked as a waitress in a cajun resturant. The chef served a secret recipie she crab soup that was to die for. I have been looking for a recipie comparable to it and I have finally found it!!!! This is sooooooooo good!!!!!
As a she crab soup lover who lives in Charleston, SC, this is not anywhere near as good as it should be.
My boyfriend and I first had she-crab soup on Hilton Head Island and loved it. This soup tasted exactly like it. It is so quick and easy to make, but don't tell him that. (I did not use the eggs.)
Really, really good! Made as directed but had to sub clam juice for the fish stock..no problem there! Since real 'she-crab' soup is made with the roe from females which gives the soup a beautiful pale coral color I did add some cayenne to spice it up a bit and add a little color..yummy!
It's better than any soup I've EVER made! I chose it because one reviewer said it tasted just like the she crab soup @ Hilton Head Island. That's an understatement! It was better than most we've had there. I highly recommend. And don't skip the egg's at the end, it gives it that authentic flavor.
This was delicious! I save and freeze shrimp shells, onion skins and celery and carrot scraps so that I'll always have a base for stock. After piling everything into a pot with some water, I cleaned my king crab legs and threw them in as well. I simmered for ninety minutes and then strained. I made my roux, added my stock and used fat free half and half instead of the milk and cream. We loved this Holly and thanks!
This is the closest I have had to the She Crab Soup in Charleston. We do like it spicy so I added 2 tsp old bay and 1/2 tsp cayenne
This tasted like milk the first time I served it. I saved the leftovers and had it for lunch the next day. Then it was the best soup I've had. It was wonderful after the flavors melded. I suggest you make it ahead of time, chill and reheat.
I did not use the eggs and used chicken stock for fish stock
