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.

  • 1 Pound blue crab meat (shells picked)
  • 1 Pound claw meat

Directions

Combine the tomatoes, chicken or fish stock, beef stock, seafood seasoning, and Worcester sauce in a large pot over medium heat and bring to a boil. Add the carrots, celery, lima beans, corn, and onion. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover, and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.

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.
