  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder or Granules
  • 3 tablespoons Thrive Flour
  • 1/4 cup Thrive Instant Milk
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons Thrive Green Onions
  • 2 tablespoons Thrive Celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon Thrive Peppercorn
  • 1 tablespoon Thrive Tomato Powder
  • 1/4 cup Thrive Sour Cream Powder
  • 8 ounces crab meat
  • 4 ounces small cooked shrimp
  • 2 ounces lobster meat
  • 2 ounces small bay scallops
  • 2 tablespoon sherry wine


  • Melt the butter in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-low heat
  • Blend the flour and garlic granules into the butter until well incorporated. Continue cooking, stirring, for about 2 minutes to create a roux.
  • Warm the water in another saucepan over medium heat, whisk in Instant Milk and tomato powder.
  • Add Peppercorns, celery and green onion.
  • Slowly whisk in the warmed milk to the roux and continue cooking and stirring until thickened.
  • If desired, puree the soup in a blender or food processor** at this point and then return it to the saucepan.
  • Stir in the seafood and the sherry. Simmer 5 minutes. Serve hot.


Finish: Replace the green onions with finely chopped shallots. If desired, garnish the soup with Thrive Green Onions, Thrive Cilantro, or Thrive Parsley.
