This creamy soup is not only quick and easy to throw together, but it is so good. Full of shrimp and big sweet lumps of crab, the flavor combinations are great! The seasonings are spot-on and the slight hint of lemon from the zest pulls it all together. This soup will be great a cool crisp evening or even a special occasion. The Test Kitchen
