Ingredients

    * Cooking spray
    * 1 1/4 cups thinly sliced shallots (about 4 large)
    * 1 celery stalk, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    * 4 garlic cloves, minced
    * 3 tablespoons sherry
    * 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    * 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
    * 1 pound fake crab
    * 3 cups fat-free milk
    * 1 cup clam juice
    * 1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
    * 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

1. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add shallots and celery to pan; cook 10 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Stir in sherry; cook 1 minute or until liquid evaporates. Add salt, peppers, and 8 ounces crabmeat.

2. Combine milk and clam juice in a large bowl. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Whisk flour into milk mixture; add to pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.

3. Place half of milk mixture in blender (or use an immersion blender). Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining milk mixture. Return pureed mixture to pan. Stir in cream; cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

4. Top soup with the crabmeat mixture.
