She-Crab Soup

    This is a great recipe. As usual, I changed it up a little. I minced up some shallots and put them in the cream (I used half 40% heavy whipping cream and half fat-free half & half - next time I will try all fat-free half & half). I also added a pinch of thyme, cayenne pepper, celery salt and onion salt. I also didn't splash the sherry in the individual serving bowls. I put in approximately 1/3 cup in my pot at the end and let it simmer for a few minutes. It is a sweet, creamy soup...filling enough for a meal! I have shared this recipe with friends.

    Could use a bit more flavor. Have tried the one on the history of she crab recipe and it has more flavor to it for sure. Maybe some cayenne or something like that in this would make it better. BUT is is a good soup. too expensive to make for it to not be outstanding. I have had She crab soup in Florida to and this does not taste anything like it.
