Savannah Crab Soup

Men and women cannot live on BBQ alone…at least in a coastal town like Savannah. Here is a recipe for Savannah Crab Soup that The General cooked this week. I would rate this a solid “B.” Having committed to trying any recipe 3 times before tweaking it, we found the recipe to be lacking in spice…black pepper, perhaps some red pepper flakes or maybe some hot sauce. You will have to tweak it yourself, because I am going to give you the recipe as is.

2 T olive oil

1 carrot, diced

1 medium onion, diced

3 C chicken broth

3 C beef broth

3-4 C potatoes, diced

3-4 C tomatoes, diced

2 t Old Bay seasoning (or other seafood seasoning)

1 Lb crabmeat

Parsley for garnish

Saute’ the carrot and onion in the oil in a stock pot. Cook until vegetables are softened. Add the broth, potatoes, tomatoes, and seafood seasoning. Simmer just until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the crabmeat and parsley and heat thoroughly.
