Maryland Blue Crab Bisque

This is another recipe I have learned from friends as I do not eat crabs but Tim enjoys them. So I will prepare them for him from time to time.

Maryland Blue Crab Bisque:

1 bunch green onions finely chopped (greens included)

5 Tablespoons butter

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 1/2 cups heavy cream

2 cups milk

2 teaspoons sea salt

1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 pound lump crabmeat picked over for shell and cartilage

In a large deep kettle or cast iron dutch oven. Saute’ the green onions in melted butter until softened, about 3 or 4 minutes. Blend in the flour and cook stirring constantly over a low heat for 5 minutes.

Stir in the milk and the cream and cook; stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Stir in the salt and spice. Stir to mix well.

Add the crabmeat but stir very gently or the crabmeat will break up. Heat slowly till hot. Serve immediately.

Hope all of ya’ll crab lovers out there give this a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

See ya’ll soon.
