Back home, white asparagus with crab meat soup is usually reserved for wedding banquet or very special occasions. Authentic Khmer recipe for this soup cooked with kdam-sre (rice- field crab). Back in the old time, our ancestors used to pounds the tiny crabs till it liquefies for this soup. I’ve tried that technique once for my dad without using the aid of electrical applicant. It took a lot of time, but it was the best white asparagus soup I’ve ever tasted. However, I prefer this recipe because it very easy to make and it’s also taste good. If you can’t eat shellfish substitute crab meat with boiled, chopped chicken breast. It is one of the best Asian recipes in South East Asia. Cambodian people like  to prefer cooking this kind of food for serving their family and friends. Let’s start to make White Asparagus with Crab Meat Soup with me.
