This is a wonderful recipe for crab soup. I am from MD and can get this in restaurants but have been looking for a recipe like this for a long time. I do add some extra things, like chopped cabbage, potatoes, and birds eye frozen mixed vegs. I don't like lima beans so I leave them out. The extra veggies make the soup take longer to cook but it is really DELICIOUS! **Try not to use pasteurized or canned crab meat or it will give the soup a "fishy" taste. Fresh crab meat works the best (if you can find it in your area).

I have been cooking Maryland Crab Soup for years. It is my all time favorite. This recipe is fabulous. I added more onion, potatoes and substituted in some crushed tomatoes. The crushed tomatoes give the soup a heartier, more robust texture.

Very good! My husband grew up in Baltimore and thought that the idea of lima beans was a bit strange so I omitted those. I did add celery, low sodium beef broth, a cubed potato and extra Old Bay seasoning. Fantastic!
