A very simple yet cream-less, unique, smooth and creamy corn and leek bisque thickened with rice. Save the crab for the garnish, Sometimes the best use of our crab is to finish the dish, like with this soup, which could easily be exchanged with a premade soup from your favorite brand. Let the crab meat shine and let your guests not only taste the crab but also see it!
One of my favorite crab dishes is crab and corn risotto, except instead of shallots or onions I like to use leeks, their sweet and delicate flavor works extremely well with both the crab meat and the corn. A simple drizzle of some store bought pesto adds a pop of color and flavor. This recipe is to make the risotto, however, if you allow to cool and then cut into portion and sauté crisp on the surface just before serving. I also dust some julienned leeks and dust with a little seasoned flour and fried crisp for some added texture.
This is one of the most popular crab soups out there and for good reason. The marriage of the sweet corn and crab in a creamy soup base highlight with crispy, smoky bacon is a sure fire hit. When fresh corn is in season, but don’t let the lack of fresh corn stop you, the recipe works just as well with frozen corn.
I better know how to make a good soup, especially if there is crab in it! This is a very quick and easy version of the classic crab & corn chowder.
