1 pound blue crab meatbody and claw, picked over for shells
In a Dutch oven or large enamel pot, heat extra virgin olive oil. Add chopped yellow onion and scallions, soften for 2-3 minutes.
Add cut sausage, cooking for 8-10 minutes or.
Stir in canned diced tomatoes, liquid included, and chicken broth. Bring to a low simmer for 10 minutes.
Add seafood seasoning, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, cayenne and frozen vegetables. Cook until it comes back to a low simmer. Frozen veggies are like adding ice cubes. They will be hot when liquid resumes simmering, about 5 minutes.
Right before serving, add blue crab meat. Top with garnishes as desired.
