  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups fish stock
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 pounds crabmeat, flaked

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups hard-cooked eggs (optional)
