Take the crab meat out of 12 crabfish tails. Dry the shells and pound them together in a mortar; add the butter, place on fire until it clarifies, about 5 minutes, strain; add crab meat in pieces, salt and pepper to taste and add to the hot milk. Mix the flour with part of the cream to a smooth paste, add the rest of the cream, mix with the soup and boil and stir until all is smooth. Serve hot with oyster crackers toasted a few moments in the oven.
