Savannah-Style Crab Soup
The richness of this soup is deceiving—lightened ingredients without sacrificing flavor. The key is the roux. But remember, the key to mastering a roux is to never leave it unsupervised. If the flour starts to brown too quickly, remove the skillet from the heat and stir the flour constantly until it cools. Serve it with some warm biscuits.
