“"This light and spicy tomato crab bisque is one of my all-time favorite emergency recipes. It's easy to shop for, requires very little effort, and only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to pull off.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 14 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay )
  • 4 cups ready-to-serve creamy tomato soup
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 8 ounces fresh lump crabmeat
  • 1 pinch salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 pinch Old Bay Seasoning


  1. Combine green onion, butter, and 1/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until onion is slightly softened, 2 minutes.
  2. Stir tomato soup into saucepan; increase heat to medium and bring to a simmer. Stir in cayenne pepper and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in crabmeat; cook, stirring occasionally, until crab is cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
  3. Whisk cream with a pinch of seafood seasoning until light and frothy, about 30 seconds. Ladle bisque into bowls and stir in a teaspoon of frothy cream.
