Yield about 2 1/2 quarts

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peeled and finely chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart hot Fish Stock
  • 1 quart hot half-and-half
  • 1 pound lump or flake crab meat, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Rhine wine
  • Additional cucumber slices (optional)
  • Hot French bread (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Sauté cucumber and onion in butter in a large Dutch oven until tender. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually add fish stock; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in half-and-half, crab meat, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat; cover and chill thoroughly.
