Maryland Crab Soup

Maryland crab soup is a staple in just about every restaurant in the state, even if it’s not a seafood restaurant. The soup is tomato based, full of vegetables and fresh picked crab meat seasoned liberally with our state-favorite seasoning, Old Bay.




1. Pick through the crab meat, removing any shells or cartilage.  
2. Add the crab meat and all of the other ingredients to a large stock pot. Stir to combine. If there is not much liquid, add another cup of water.
3. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to very low. Let simmer, stirring occasionally for at least 3 hours.
4. Adjust any seasonings to taste and serve hot with crackers or bread.
