"This luscious bisque combines seafood with potatoes, milk, dill weed, and minced vegetables. Its slight kick comes courtesy of red pepper flakes and Worcestershire. For a richer version, use cream instead of milk. If you like, add baby shrimp, too!" — PASTAWITHGARLIC

My boyfriend came home with a spider crab he caught in the harbor down the street, having no idea what to make I searched and found this amazing recipe. It takes a bit longer to make than it states but it is well worth it. I loved it, my friends loved it and many asked me for the recipe. I brought the leftovers to Easter and the grandparents loved it too. If you use live crab make sure you kill it before you place into boiling water (15 mins). Also I added a bit more carrots and celery. Make sure to use a white onion.
This was good. However, it definitely needed to be spiced more thoroughly. I added about 1.5 tsps of dill weed, 1/2 tsp of yellow curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I also added 2 cans of crab instead of one. Thank you!
FANTASTIC!!! ok, perhaps the reason why I chose to make this dish is because my boyfriend's name is Matt, but this was wonderful! Some modifications...I honestly didn't want to put canned crab in the bisque, instead used 2 cans of minced clams (not drained) and one can of oysters (DRAINED). Perhaps with the extra juice from the extra can of clams, it was too soupey, so we added one more tablespoon of flour. We also thought it was a bit bland while simmering, so we added one more buillion cube and garlic salt to taste. This was amazing and Matt and Me are super happy we found this recipe!
I tried this recipe last night, but made a small addition of 1 lb of bay scallops. It went very well, and was an excellent soup that Jason and I had with garlic bread. Great job Matt!
I thought this was a very tasty soup, loved the combination of crab and clams. The finished product was a bit thin for me. I did add extra veggies and even added some left over mashed potato, used extra flour/water slurry to thinken, but even that didn't do it for me. I guess I just like a thicker soup. Next time I will puree some of the veggie/potato/broth mix and add back before adding the seafood. I also cooked this much longer that the recipe calls for, even small diced potatoes need a longer cooking time. Thanks for a nice submission, I enjoyed trying this.
This was so delicious, it was kind of on the thin side, but I did add an extra can of clams w/juice... I also added an extra bouillon since it called for 6 cups water and only 3 buillon cubes. It was very good!.. I thickened with more milk and cornstarch. Served with crusty french bread!
Kind of bland,crab and clams didn't have enough flavor. My fault. Next time I will put shrimp, & a few more vegtables wouldn't hurt. Will make again.
I didn't use fresh crab, instead I used the canned kind, which is what it asked for. This has a good flavor and it's almost like potato soup with a twist. I was expecting the potatoes to fall apart due to the cooking time but they stayed together pretty well...I'm not sure if they're supposed to fall apart because it's a bisque. Easy on the red pepper because a little goes a long way.
