1. Drain crabmeat, and remove any cartilage.
2. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in medium saucepan.
3. Remove from heat; stir in flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne until smooth. Gradually stir in clam juice and cream. Bring mixture to boiling, stirring; sauce will be thickened and smooth. Stir in sherry, egg, and crabmeat.
