Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!

The recipe potato soup with crabs I present to you in this article. You can put this soup on your own table in less than 30 minutes and give your loved ones a real treat.

North Sea prawns taste absolutely great. These shrimps are browner than other small shrimps. You can order the prawns on the internet or prepare this soup with small, normal shrimps.

Besides potatoes I use carrots for the soup, because the sweetish taste of the carrot fits perfectly to the North Sea crab. To make the soup a highlight on the table, I mix part of the soup before serving. You can also prepare the soup with more inlay, in which case it’s already a potato stew with crabs.

Now I wish you good luck, share this article with your friends …
