Preparation

When cooking this Crab Bisque recipe, heat the butter before doing anything else. Be sure to include carrots, celery, garlic, and shallots – cook 5 minutes. Set stove to medium and add wine to remove the glazed look of the previous added ingredients. Whip in the scampi seasoning, tomato paste, and stock. When items start to boil, lessen the heat to low – uncovered, for 20 minutes. Use a blender to puree the soup. After the ingredients are added to the soup, add crab and simmer for 10 more minutes. The last process of this preparation is to dollop 4 spoonfuls of hot soup to the heavy cream and mix well to fortify the cream before stirring it into the soup.
