Maryland Crab Soup

There’s not anything more quintessentially ‘Eastern Shore’ compared to its seafood. Oysters, rockfish along with the Chesapeake Blue Crab would be the Bay’s local triad of components that have made the area famous across the nation. The hidden secret of the Eastern Shore is the crabs from Don’s Crabs and Seafood Market.
