Recipe Information
A rich soup with a sherry overtone



  • 2 cans condensed tomato soup or tomato bisque (bisque preferred)
  • 1 can condensed pea soup (plain kind, no ham)
  • 1 can beef consomm or broth (not condensed, low-sodium preferred)
  • 2 c half-and-half (half milk, half cream)
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry sherry
  • 2 to 3 cups (700 ml) fresh Dungeness crab meat
  • In a blender, or by hand, mix soups.
  • In saucepan, heat mixed soups over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Add half-and-half and sherry.
  • Just before serving, reheat to serving temperature.
  • Add crab and heat a few minutes more; avoid cooking the crab.
Best quality imitation crab meat, shredded, works well and cuts the cost considerably. If you can get only frozen crab meat, use the imitation.
