Oh man! We really love, love, love eating crab here at home. Here’s one that always pleases family and friends. Try it and let us know what you think!
- 5 tablespoons Flour
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
- ½ teaspoon coarse ground Black Pepper
- ½ teaspoon dried Parsley or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped Parsley
- ½ stick Butter
- 1 medium Onion, chopped coarsely
- 2 cups Milk
- 2 cups Half and Half
- 1 pound Crabmeat, already steamed/cooked
In a small bowl, or cup, mix the Flour, Old Bay, Black Pepper, and Parsley. Set aside.
In a saucepan, melt butter on medium heat.
Add chopped onion, stir about 5 minutes or until softened.
Add the mixture of Flour, Old Bay, Pepper, and Parsley. Whisk in well.
Whisk in the Milk and Half and Half slowly and continue to whisk until it just starts to boil.
Stir in crabmeat. Lower heat to low and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve and enjoy!
Note. If the soup seems too thick or too thin: While still on the stove cooking, to thin, stir in a little milk. To thicken the soup, mix with a little flour–try 1 teaspoon–with just enough warm water to liquify the flour; then add that to the hot soup pot and stir in well.
