I’ve been on a bisque kick lately.  This one is pretty quick and easy.  Thought I would share.

Quick Corn and Crab Bisque

Corn and Crab Bisque

Corn and Crab Bisque


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery
  • 26 ounces prepared seafood stock
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 cups frozen sweet white corn kernels (divided use)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 large bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay or other seafood seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 pound lump crab meat
  • salt to taste
  • chopped green onion for serving


In a large soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and celery and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are soft.  Add the stock, water, 3 cups of corn kernels, garlic, bay leaf, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay, thyme and pepper.  Cover and bring to a boil.  Cook at a high boil for 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to low.

Remove the bay leaf and discard.  Using an immersion blender (motor boat) process until the soup is smooth.  Stir in the remaining corn and crab.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Adjust the seasoning with salt to taste.  Continue to simmer for 5 minutes or up to 2 hours.  More is always better for a deeper flavor.

Serve in shallow bowls with green onions to garnish and french bread.  Makes about 6 servings.
