Tomato-Basil Crab Bisque

The key to making sure that you have all the shells out of the crab is to lay out the crab on a baking sheet in a oven at 300.  The shell's will turn to a pink color. This way you will know that there are shells and you need to pick them out.   Much better then eating them in the Bisque.


1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (8 ounces) hunts tomato sauce with roasted garlic
1 cup half and half
1 cup coarsely chopped cooked crab meat
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 ground black pepper
1/4 chopped fresh basil leaves.

1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.  Add onion; cook 3 minutes or until tender stirring frequently.

2.  Add tomato sauce, half and half, crab, broth, salt and pepper. Bring just to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cover tightly and simmer 5  minutes. Sprinkle with basil before serving.
