1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup chopped scallions
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups seafood broth or clam juice
2 cups low-fat (1%) milk
3 tablespoons dry sherry
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 pound crabmeat, picked free of shell
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Heat the oil in a large saucepan until hot. Add the scallions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 – 4 minutes. Stir in the flour; cook 1 minute. Slowly add the broth and milk; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until smooth and bubbly, about 8 minutes. Stir in the sherry, Paula Deen Lemon Pepper Seasoning, white pepper, and cayenne. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the soup thickens slightly, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in crabmeat; heat through. Sprinkle with chives. Serve at once.
