Crab Soup non- dairy

It’s fall it’s soup time.  I live in blue crab territory and I use it a lot.  So how about some crab soup.  This is not the traditional she crab soup, because you can only get crab roe anywhere it is protected to keep the population up. (I assume they mean crab population)  I also switched out the 2 cups of heavy cream and 2 cups of half and half for coconut milk.   It still creamy and yummy and it also has all the flavor.  I hope you like it.
