Nothing says Maryland like fresh, sweet crabs, but add a dash of the state’s favorite Old Bay seasoning and you have one creamy, rich seafood soup that is more than a local favorite, it’s a time-honored tradition. Our recipe uses the classic spicy Old Bay seasoning and a splash of dry sherry.

Crab Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
