It's a very nice soup if you're entertaining a number of people. It's unique filled with all kinds of good stuff and very very very rich. It almost has a "bisque" quality to it but "nutty" as well. I used fresh crab which made it tiring to make -- and as careful as we were in taking the meat out of the shell we still found shell bits in our soup. My mistake was trying to eat the entire recipe over the course of a number of consecutive days. It's way too rich to try to eat it that way. Again highly recommended to give to people as a one course appetizer at a party.
The recipe itself was good. HOWEVER it's not authentic. My husband is from Cameroon Africa...so I wanted to make this one night as a surprise for him...and he didn't even recognize what it was. I asked my sister-in-law over the following weekend to show me how to make real egusi soup...and it's NOTHING like this recipe.
