"This cream of crab soup is so rich and delicious! I make this a lot, especially in the winter with some nice, hot rolls! Use more Old Bay to suit your taste. I also recommend using lump crabmeat. Enjoy!!"

I am the origional submitter of the recipe and yes 3 tablespoons of Old Bay is alot...but being from Maryland ..we love Old Bay and it's never enough for us! Of course it probably would be a little much for most people..so just adjust the amount to suit your taste. This is still the best cream of crab I have tasted. Enjoy!!

We are picky about our cream of crab and this recipe is a definite keeper. It's the first one that turned out great. I think the hollandaise and sherry are just the right amounts and give it a great flavor. This would have been 5 stars without changes, but I did add a bit of extra sherry and crabmeat. Those two changes are just personal preference. On top of being a terrific recipe, it was also quite easy to make. Not too many ingredients or steps to follow. I'd make this for dinner party.

Great idea - great soup. I tripled this recipe and supplemented about 1/3 of the lump crab with shrimp meat. I also added sauteed onions and celery, a little more sherry, and chopped parsley. There are a lot of great additions you could do with this soup - the base is awesome. The half & half can easily be replaced with milk for a few less fat cals - it's still rich and creamy. The ONLY reason I'm not giving this recipe 5 stars is because of the out-of-control Old Bay called for. I used half and had more than enough. Great recipe anyway, thanks Karyn!
