Doug Schofield’s Corn and Crab Bisque

Ingredients

-1 pint heavy cream

-1 pint milk

-1 cup chicken stock

-1/2 pound crabmeat

-1 cup chopped onion

-1 can whole kernel corn (do not drain)

-1 tablespoon parsley flakes

-1 teaspoon salt – more or less to taste

-1 tablespoon sugar

-2 1/2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning – more or less to taste

-1 teaspoon Zataran’s liquid concentrated Shrimp and Crab Boil

Roux ingredients

-1/4 cup four

-1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

Directions

Combine cream, milk and stock in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add corn and crab meat and let simmering continue. Make a roux. Add roux to simmering pot (careful, it will splatter since it is much hotter). Simmer for another five minutes or so, sample, and adjust seasoning if necessary.
