Preparing Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 25 to 30 min
Prepared for: 6 to 8 people



· 3 tbsp unsalted butter
· 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
· 1 tbsp vegetable oil
· 1 large onion, chopped
· 1 tbsp minced garlic
· 1 large celery stalk, minced
· Cajun / Creole seasoning to taste
· 1 cup chicken broth
· 1 ½ cups frozen corn kernels
· 1 bay leaf
· 2 cups whole milk
· 2 cups heavy cream
· 1 tsp liquid shrimp and crab boil concentrate
· 1 pound fresh lump crabmeat
· ¼ cup chopped green onions
· ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce

Make a Roux. Melt the unsalted butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; then casually whisk in the flour. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, whisking constantly, until a golden roux forms. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Combine the onion, garlic, and celery and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add the Cajun / Creole seasoning to taste. Stir in the broth, corn, and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer, then pour in the milk, cream, and liquid crab boil. When the mixture begins to simmer, reduce heat to low and simmer for 7 minutes. Stir in the roux with a spoon, blending thoroughly. Continue to cook, on low heat, whisking until mixture thickens. Stir in crabmeat, green onions, and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer 6 to 8 minutes more. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
