Brampton Crab Bisque


4 tblsp. unsalted butter
1 small onion minced
½ cup. flour
4 cups fish or vegetable bullion
4 cups half and half
½- ¾ lb. crabmeat
Salt and white pepper to taste


In a heavy bottomed pan melt butter and add minced onion. Cook over medium heat until onions are cooked but not browned.

Add flour and cook for 3-5 min. stirring constantly. Do not let brown.

Add bullion and cook until thick. Keep cooking for another 3-5 min. This will make the “flour” taste go away. Add half and half mix well until nice and creamy. It should have the consistency of heavy cream. Turn down heat. Add crab meat and heat until crab meat is heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Do not let boil!

Add a dash of sherry if you wish.
