Cape Cod Crab Soup

A nice version of crab soup made special by a hint of cognac...




In a large pot, melt the butter and sauté the onions until soft.  Add the carrots, celery, and red pepper.  Cook for three or four minutes more.

Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables.  Add the chicken broth and mix well.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and add the crab. Simmer gently for 30 minutes.

Bring to a boil again.  Add the cognac and paprika.  Season with the sea salt and pepper. 

Reduce the heat and simmer gently.  Beat the egg yolks with the cream.  Stir into the soup mixing thoroughly. Garnish with chopped chives.


Enjoy from Cape Cod Soups!
