Cooking soup with crab:
Step 1: Boil the crab.
To prepare the soup is suitable as a live crab, and fresh frozen, or even canned. Good suitable ready-made crab meat that did not have his "scratch out" from the shell.
The first thing you need to boil a crab. It is believed that sea creatures need to boil sea water or ordinary water, but salted with sea salt - in any case, without salt, we can not do. In a saucepan pour a lot of water - so that the crab was covered completely. First we bring the water to a boil, then add 4 tablespoons of salt, stir to dissolve the salt, and then drop the crab. Cook it for 15 minutes until done, which can be determined by separating the small claws - they must be separated easily. Water reserve - it is still useful, but omit the finished crab in cold water to cool down and we were able to easily separate the meat.
If you use fresh frozen already boiled crab, it is necessary to defrost and warm up a little bit - in boiling salted water. Only need to water a couple of glasses. A cook is also 10-15 minutes.
Step 2: Cook the soup with crabs.
Clear the onions and garlic, finely shinkuem them and passed on to a heated deep pan (you can use the pan), greased with vegetable oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes. We shift perezharku in the pan in which the soup will cook.
Before you add meat to soup, it must be removed. Getting clean crab legs - detachable limbs, carefully remove the shell and open it - it contains the most delicious meat. Remove it and set aside in a bowl. Gills remove - to the food they are not suitable, and add them to the soup, we will not. Under the shell, and where the claws are attached, are hiding a lot of small cracks with delicious meat - it, too, we add to the bowl. Crush claws with a nutcracker for chopping nuts and take out the white meat. Extracted crab meat in a frying pan to shift the onions and garlic, add spices to taste and a few tablespoons of water in which the cooked crab. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated. Then, a little fry the contents and tasting - if spice is not enough, add more.
While preparing the soup, open a jar of canned tomatoes and finely chop them or rubbed through a grater, and then spread into the pan, season with salt to taste and add 1 liter of broth - water in which they cooked crab. Cook 5 minutes, add the cream, mix soup, cook for another 5 minutes and turn off. crab soup is ready!
Step 3: We serve the finished soup with crab. .
We serve hot soup spilled on plates in portions, each of which you need to put on a few pieces of crab meat. Soup decorate with finely chopped herbs and served with toasted bread or croutons!
Tips to the recipe:
