Nowadays it’s been Westernised a bit, and you’ll often see recipes that add potatoes, celery, or other vegetables. But I think it’s best kept simple so that the flavors of the crab and corn can really shine through.
If you can’t get fresh crab meat, you could use canned crab meat. but if you can get hold of some fresh crab, it really makes this soup special. When buying crab, make sure it’s fresh and not frozen, as the quality of the crabmeat will be much better.
