Kickin' Crab Bisque
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 pieces Celery, diced
2 Carrots, diced
1 small Yellow Onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups Milk (or half and half if you don't mind the calories!)
8 oz. chicken (or seafood) stock
2 cups Crab meat, shredded (I like Snow Crab the best
but you can use your fave.)
3 cups corn kernels (white corn is sweeter!)
Zest from half a lemon
2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons corn starch
Saute celery, carrots, garlic and onion in olive oil. Combine all ingredients
except wine and corn starch in Crock-Pot; stir well.
Cover and cook on Low setting for 3 to 5 hours.
Just before serving mix the wine and cornstarch in a cup, pour into chowder
Cook another 20 minutes.
(all of this can be made on the stove in an hour if you are in a hurry!
Simmer on medium.)
Makes about 2 quarts.
