She Crab Soup is one of those warming soups that hits the spot every time. The combination of the crab meat and sherry with the cream, milk and butter makes this recipe a smooth delicious soup that is both easy to prep but incredibly fast to cook. Being able to produce a tasty bowl of crab soup for 4 people from scratch in 20 minutes is remarkable. Once you have made this, it will become a frequent choice in your kitchen. Adding the crab eggs adds an extra texture and flavour but is not a necessity. Always try and use fresh crab meat as it has so much more flavour.
