If you've ever had crab soup from the Chesapeake Bay area, you know you'll be hit with a craving during the long off-season. What makes crab soup so different and so enticing? Crab meat is slightly sweet. This adds such a delicious, fresh flavor to the soup. If you cook the split crab in the soup before mincing the crabmeat, it also provides a wonderful taste of the bay that you cannot get from crab or seafood alone. When that off-season craving strikes, what are you going to do? Fortunately, you can count on Crab Dynasty to supply frozen, sweet, hard-shell crabs for soup all year round, shipped to your door. Order the finest soup crabs, and enjoy your favorite Chesapeake soup any time of year!
Thaw in lukewarm water. Once thawed, rinse in cold water. First, add to your crab soup, then add all of your other favorite ingredients. The soup crab is a great way to add that sweet flavor to many of your favorite crab soup recipes!
