Stir cream and crab into soup, stirring until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with green onions.

Tips

Cook's Note:

This dish will be very thick during cooking until the heavy whipping cream is added. Stir frequently to prevent the cream from scorching. I add Cajun seasoning (such as Tony's) sometimes when I want to change the flavor just a tad. Serving in a bread bowl dresses the dish up on special occasions.

I tried this recipe today and my husband and I loved it. I did substitute one of the cans of condensed cream of potato soup with a can of cream of shrimp soup. This is one of the easiest and best recipes for this that I have ever tried. You don't have to use a recipe with an endless list of ingredients for it to be great. This recipe proves that. I will cook this again. Read More

I made this last night and everyone really enjoyed it. It had great flavor and aroma and it was super easy to make. I thought it was more like a chowder than a bisque but we loved it! I have marked it as a favorite and we will definitely be making it again... Thanks for the great recipe! Read More
