So what is this she crab soup that you seem to enjoy?

I'm going to happy hour at a sushi place, so cheap sushi for dinner.

She crabs and their roe, cream, and with a splash of Sherry basically. It is amazing.

She-Crab Soup
This delectable recipe will have you clamoring for more.

A culinary icon of Charleston, South Carolina, she-crab soup was traditionally a rich combination of cream, crabmeat, roe (eggs), and a splash of sherry. The meat from a female crab is said to be sweeter, but it was the addition of her red-orange roe that created the dish's depth of flavor and beautiful pale color and resulted in the name "she-crab" soup.

These days, roe is not harvested in an ecological effort to preserve the supply of crabs. Is it still she-crab soup if there's no roe? Yes--and no. The heart of the recipe remains the same. But when you can, try it made with roe, and savor every precious spoonful.

You'll find some variations, but purists know the basic recipe is the true Southern tradition. Fresh crabmeat is essential. For all of you lucky enough to catch your own crabs, you'll need about a dozen. If you remove the shell of the female crab and discover what looks like a mass of tiny red-orange beads inside, you've struck gold--I mean roe. Remove it carefully; stir it into the soup with the crabmeat. (Note: Female crabs with roe on the outside must be returned to the water.)

Whether your crabmeat is from crabs you caught yourself or from the supermarket, enjoy a taste of the region.

I am going to cook the hell out of some lentils until they are all mushy, and eat them on a tortilla like a veggie taco.

Simple, but one of my favorite weeknight dinners. :P

Andy years back I worked at a S. Florida restaurant (the Crab Pot in Lantana) that had a she crab soup different from your traditional one but incredible also. Spicy broth with crab roe and chunks of meat, tomatoes and a few other veggies. Sooo good.

The roe makes it I believe - fresh blue crab is also a plus. I am always surprised I like the roe for some reason.

Wed is our Mexican restaurant night. It will be a challenge to order something tasty that won't mess up my diet, and to ignore all the tasty chips & salsa.

I think I will get a shot o' tequila though.

Health kick I guess? 8)

I need to come down there for some good food. Went on vacation to Wildwood NJ this weekend and they can not cook down there at all. They can't even make a pizza taste decent. I am talking some bread with ketchup and basically no taste cheese.
