The Very Best She-Crab Soup Ever!

I am from the South Carolina lowcountry, and I have spent years experimenting and trying to re-create the fabulous creamy crab soup native to Charleston. I have played with numerous recipes, and I am finally satisfied that I have stumbled upon the perfect concoction of she-crab bisque. More than likely, you will end up with a "he-crab" soup, as the crab roe is what makes it "she-crab" and it is almost impossible to get your hands on. If you ever find crab roe, savor every precious spoonful! Still a bowl of heaven without it though!
