Creamy Coconut And Crab Soup
"Fresh, sweet crab is available in any season. You can often buy crab that is already cooked and cleaned but nothing beats freshly cooked crab at your home. Cooking crab is just as easy as cooking dry pasta. You just need salt, boiling water and patience. It takes just 10 minutes and voila, you can eat sweet, fresh crabs. You’ll love this creamy soup recipe. You can add other seafood such as squid, scallops, lobster and many others to increase the variety of flavors. You can also add some vegetables such as potatoes, corn and carrots or top it with fresh coriander."
NotesYou can pair this recipe with light bodied white wines that are herbaceous and that also compliment the creaminess of the coco cream.
