Creamy Crab Soup


Do you like seafood soup??? you’ll definitely need to try this…Creamy crab soup, a milky base soup mixed with some veggies, herbs and spices. I remember when I was working in a restaurant in the Philippines, our head chef use to prepare this soup in banquet, we don’t serve the whole crab, he just use it to enhance the flavor of the soup. We eat the some of the crab as our employees meal…… Did you know that crabs are low in fat and good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Crabs are also rich in a nutrient that plays an important role in protecting our bodies from oxidative damage. That nutrient is selenium, eating enough selenium is important to keep these systems functioning.
