An excellent & easy dish. I questioned whether or not I should buy the crab boil for this but I went ahead and did it and I'm glad because I really feel like it made this recipe! I do wish I would have invested in fresh crab meat with this instead of canned. I used heavy whipping cream instead of half&half. My husband & I really enjoyed this. I'm sure I will be making it again. Made & enjoyed for ZWT5- french/cajun/creole rgion!

Easy to make and flavorful! I also didn't have any crab boil and used cayenne pepper instead and still tasted great. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Yum!

Made to specifics; I don't think that I reduced mine as I should have; but the taste was definitely there. Used imitation crab for even more calorie reduction. Delish! Made for ZWT3. Thanks, EmmyDuckie.

This soup is very good. Unfortunately krab (fake crab) unravels when warm. I had to strain it out after eating the first bowl's worth. This would obviously taste a million times better with real crab - I was just trying to cut down on my seafood consumption. I will try again with beef broth and beef strips to mix things up. Either way the broth was very delicious and I loved the heat!!

Thought this was wonderful. I did add a carrot for more veg and color (didn't puree) Used Old bay and some cayenne for extra zip. Used real crab and ended up not putting the whole pound of crab in. Next time I will use only 8 oz both due to cost and to make it slightly less rich. I did use fresh corn as it is in season. This has so much flavor!

Excellent. I think we will be having this again. I used regular half-and-half, but only 1/2 cup. I did use the cayenne pepper instead of crab boil, but I would like to try it with crab boil. I added about a half teaspoon or so of cajun seasoning and I used all olive oil and no butter. I think I could have gone without any oil at all and just used water, although then you don't get the same sautee flavor, but the soup is so flavorful anyway I am not sure it would be noticeable.

Loved this! It was rich and creamy and hearty. You'd never know it was a healthy version of the soup. I didn't have crab boil, so I used cayenne, and it was great. Thanks for a great, healthy soup!
