How to make it

  • Sweat the bacon in the oil, to release the bacon fat and keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Cook until nearly crisp, cooked but not burnt.
  • Dump in chopped veggies, carrots, onions, potatoes, celery, garlic.
  • Stir and coat with bacon fat and cook a few minutes to soften and season veggies.
  • Add bay leaf, pepper, broth, water, lobster soup base, and tomatoes.
  • Turn heat to low and simmer for at least 45 minutes.
  • Add crab, sherry and cream stir gently and heat five to ten minutes on very low heat and serve.
  • Best with a crusty bread and a bottle of wine.
