This is a great basic recipe, but I adjusted it to make it absolutely delectable! First, I sauteed some veggies I like (red pepper, onion, garlic, celery) for about 30 minutes in olive oil, being careful not to burn. This creates a super-rich base that is great for any soup or sauce. At the end of this cooking time, you should have a brown mush with bits that stick to the bottom of the pan. Then I added all the other ingredients -- except the crab -- pureed it all, then added crab and some corn that I cut off the cob earlier. This makes for a nice texture. I made my own hollandaise from this site, skipped the butter and used whole milk instead, which made no difference in the richness because of the vegetable base. Try it, you'll love it!
