Slightly adapted for analyzation and what I had on hand. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/crab-bisque.html Two 2-lb. Dungeness crabs or eight to ten hard-shelled blue crabs will yield about 1 lb. of crabmeat. You can also buy cooked crabs and extract the meat. Fresh lump crabmeat is the next-best option, especially if you are short on time; look for it at fish markets. Otherwise, use frozen or canned crabmeat, drained and quickly rinsed.

Recipe Ingredients for Williams-Sonoma Crab Bisque

1 tbs. unsalted butter
1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup onion, minced
1/2 cup celery, minced
5 cups fish or chicken stock
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground white pepper
1 lb crab
1/2 cup marsala wine
2 tbsp tarragon

Recipe Directions for Williams-Sonoma Crab Bisque

  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat, melt the butter with the oil. Add the shallots (onion & celery) and sauté until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the stock and cream, and season with kosher salt and white pepper. Bring to a simmer.

  2. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the crabmeat. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the marsala (sherry) and heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Ladle the soup into warmed shallow bowls and garnish with tarragon. Serve immediately.
