New Orlean's Corn and Crab Bisque (or Shrimp)

Total Time

You will need to make corn stock AND shrimp stock. I suggest using shrimp since the stock will be used anyway. You may also add a little cornstarch dissolved in water at the end if you prefer this to be slightly thicker. Prep time includes time for stocks.

I havemade this recipe and twice and both times it was excellent. Worth the effort!!! I omitted the shrimp and used canned crab instead, just an amazing soup.
