I posted this a while ago, in a thread I started about soups. It is certainly a tasty soup, if you like shellfish!

(Gaelic for Crab Soup)

2 large boiled crabs
3 tablespoons long-grain rice (I like to use Basmati)
600ml milk
600ml chicken stock
Half teaspooon anchovy essence or Thai fish sauce
Frehly milled salt and white pepper (to your taste)
300ml cream
Chopped parsley

Remove the meat from the crabs, keep the the claw meat separate. Cook the rice in the milk for around 15 minutes or until it is soft, then add it to the crab meat. Whizz in a liquidiser for 1 minute, or until smooth.

Put into a clean saucepan and gradually stir in the stock over a low heat. Continue to stir as it boils and season to taste after adding the anchovy essence. Lastly add the claw meat, stir until reheated, and swirl some cream into the soup just before serving and sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Serve with crusty granary bread

Partan bree is a Scottish crab soup of sorts made with cream. This my version, which is probably more like a chowder, depending on how thick you make it.

1/2 lb - 1 lb. lump crab meat
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pint half and half
1 package frozen white sweet corn
1 t. flour
Old Bay* seasoning to taste

In a small pan, saute the onions and garlic in butter until lightly carmelized. Gradually add flour a little at a time, stirring constantly until slightly thickened. Gradually add the half and half, stirring with a whisk. Add the crab meat, corn, and season to taste. Bring to a simmer and serve.

*Old Bay can be found in many grocery stores in the spice section. It's made by McCormick.
