Low Carb Luxury Recipe!
The Soup Nazi's Crab Bisque

Ingredients:
  • 4 pounds snow crab clusters (legs)
  • 4 quarts water (16 cups)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, quartered
  • 2 small turnips, peeled, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped Italian parsley
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pimento
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/3 cup sugar-free tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons half and half
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon marjoram

Remove all the crab meat from the shells and set it aside.

Put half of the shells into a large pot with 4 quarts of water over high heat. Add onion, 1 stalk of chopped celery, and garlic; then bring mixture to a boil. Continue to boil for 1 hour, stirring occasionally (The white part of the shells will start to become transparent), then strain stock. Discard the shells, onion, celery and garlic, keeping only the stock.

Measure 3 quarts (12 cups) of the stock into a large sauce pan or cooking pot. If you don't have enough stock, add enough water to make 3 quarts.

Add turnips, bring mixture to a boil, then add 1/2 of the crab and the remaining ingredients to the pot and bring it back to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 4 hours, uncovered until it reduces by about half and starts to thicken. Add the remaining crab and simmer for another hour until the soup is very thick.

Note: This is a very slightly altered version of the soup that is Jerry's favorite from the Soup Nazi episode of Seinfeld. The recipe was naturally very low-carb. This is likely to be the best tasting crab bisque you've ever tasted and has no sugary fillers like commercial crab bisque.

Makes 6 servings.   5 net grams of carbohydrate per serving.
