1 celery stalk, finely chopped (about ½ cup)
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp. vermouth
¾ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, shell pieces removed, and divided
3 cups fat-free milk
1 cup clam juice
1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
½ cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
1½ tsp. fresh lemon juice

. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add shallots and celery to pan; cook 10 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Stir in vermouth; cook 1 minute or until liquids evaporates. Add salt, peppers, and 8 ounces crabmeat.

. Place half of milk mixture in blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining milk mixture. Return puréed mixture to pan. Stir in cream; cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
