Directions

  1. Combine green onion, butter, and 1/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until onion is slightly softened, 2 minutes.
  2. Stir tomato soup into saucepan; increase heat to medium and bring to a simmer. Stir in cayenne pepper and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in crabmeat; cook, stirring occasionally, until crab is cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  3. Whisk cream with a pinch of seafood seasoning until light and frothy, about 30 seconds. Ladle bisque into bowls and stir in a teaspoon of frothy cream.

This soup is good and if there is an emergency for "crab soup" this works well. It all depends on what prepared tomato soup you use. However, I can think of better ways to use expensive crab meat. Having said that,if offered a bowl, I would for sure eat itand enjoy it.

Easy recipe that tastes great! I used crab legs instead and it was still delicious! Great for an occasion when you want an elegant dish without all the fuss.

Very easy to make and delicious! Made as written but also added a little sweet corn and used half and half.
