      I made this lovely soup as a starter course for our part of a dinner party last nite. I did chg the final presentation, used canned asparagus & made 1 addition out of need. I added the asparagus earlier than stated, pureed the soup after Step 5 & then added cooked rice + 1 cup Icelandic baby shrimp (only because 2 guests were added for dinner at the last min). It was a *huge hit* ~ everyone had at least 2 cup-size servings & 1 of the added guests even had a 3rd! We loved this! Thx for sharing the recipe w/us & our friends who loved it as well. :-)

      This soup was outstanding. What a perfect balance of the richness of milk-based soup with the delicate crab, both of them complemented by a touch of acid from the lemon zest, as well as the vibrant freshness of asparagus. This is a real winner, and I think everyone should try it.
