Cream of Crab Soup
The Cream of Crab is of the usual composition, being that of a cream base, sherry, spices, and crab meat. The one important thing to point out is that the crab is added on top before serving.
This soup is really quite good! The crab smell that hits you when you get the bowl smells awesome! Nice, sweet flavor to the crab, which is also in nice sized chunks and plentiful enough to have crab in almost every bite. The broth has a bit of a flowery/pasty taste to it. But the spice! The spice sneaks up on you with a peppery punch that lingers well after the last bite. Not to say that's a bad thing, as we really liked it. But if you're not used to spicy cream of crab soups, then you may be taking a gamble here.
If we had to do anything, we'd hold back on the pepper a bit, and up the crab seasoning. The pepper sort of takes over, so any other spices are lost, and it starts to compete with the delicious flavor of the crab.
