Ready In:




  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; then gradually whisk in the flour. Cook 5 to 7 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 minute. Add the Cajun 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 7 minutes. Stir in the roux, 1 tablespoon at a time, 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 salt and pepper to taste.

  1. I live in southern MS and can get Cajun boiled crab or shrimp most of the year. I used already boiled shrimp and boiled corn for this recipe along with boiling the shells of the crab/shrimp and using its liquid instead of the chicken broth. It’s my #1 bisque recipe! I LOVE it!!!
  2. Good Chowder! It took me longer than 20 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to cook. I used 1 teaspoon of Recipe #14190. I also used Old Bay for the seasoning for the crab boil seasoning. I love crab but I felt it overpowered the rest of the chowder. Next time I will increase the corn to 1 3/4 cups or 2 cups and increase the cajun seasoning 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 teaspoons. Made for ZWT9 for the Gourment Goddesses July 2013.
