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 …

Here are some tips for the potato soup with shrimps and what I think you should keep in mind:

  • You can use raw or already boiled potatoes.
  • Use some butter, shallots or onions, allspice and bay leaf for the soup preparation.
  • Little garlic does well, don’t exaggerate!
  • Add dry white wine and vegetable broth to the soup, let the soup boil, then let the cream run in slowly.
  • Let the cold cream run in slowly into boiling liquid only, so the cream can NOT flocculate!
  • Add the carrots, small and thin, cut into slices.
  • Add the diced potatoes or already boiled potatoes pressed small and cooked over a moderate heat, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • Fish the spices – bay leaf and allspice from the soup.
  • Wash the prawns briefly under cold water.
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan and brown.
  • Arrange the soup, foam up part of the soup with cold butter.
  • Heat the prawns briefly in the pan, it will only take a minute!

Arrange the soup and add the prawns in the middle. You can decorate the soup with marjoram, thinly sliced young onion slices and chilli and then serve quickly.
