1 8-oz can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/3 cup Half and Half cream
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. tomato paste
5 oz. raw shrimp, tails removed
1 5 oz. can fancy crab meat
1/2 tsp. Old Bay
1/2 tsp. black pepper
For a more traditional flavor, also saute a stalk of celery. I leave it out because I just don't like it.
If you don't have a Vitamix, just prepare the milk-broth mixture in a small soup pot. The soup with have more chunks but that's a-okay.
Saute the onions and garlic in a skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes or until soft. Add to the Vitamix, along with the Old Bay and Pepper, and blend on High until steaming.
Meanwhile, cut up the shrimp into small pieces. Place in the skillet and cook, stirring often, until almost opaque. Add the canned crabmeat to the shrimp and continue to cook until the shrimp are completely opaque and hot.
When the milk mixture in the Vitamix is nice and hot, turn off the blend and add half of the seafood. Turn the blender to Variable 4 and blend for 10 seconds.
Divide the remaining seafood into four bowls and top with the hot soup. Stir and sprinkle on a little extra Old Bay.
