Crab and Corn Bisque

Ingredients

1 pt. lump crabmeat

1/2 c. (1 stick) butter (do not substitute margarine)

1-1/2 c. finely chopped sweet onion

4 T. all-purpose flour

6 c. fresh corn kernels (see ‘Recipe Note 1’ below)

2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

1-1/2 qt. heavy cream

3/4 c. thinly sliced green onions, white & green portions

3-4 additional green onions, thinly sliced for garnish

Preparation

Gently pick through the crabmeat to remove any bits of shell or cartilage, being careful not to break up lumps of crabmeat; set aside. Melt butter in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chopped onion and saute until translucent (approximately 10 minutes). Whisk in flour, then add corn kernels. Continue to cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper, then stir in heavy cream and lower heat. Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally — do not boil (see ‘Recipe Note 2’ below). Stir in sliced green onions, then very gently fold in crabmeat, being careful not to break up lumps. Return bisque to a simmer over low heat, cover and cook for an additional 10 minutes; stir once. Additional seasoning may be added, if desired, before serving. Garnish with additional sliced green onions and serve with oyster crackers or French bread. Yields 6 to 8 servings as an entree. Freezes beautifully.
