DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon is a large frying pan with a little oil on low to get the grease out of the bacon.
  • Chop pepper, tomato, onion, celery and carrots, then add to the bacon in the frying pan. Let simmer for about 15-20 minutes on medium low heat.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large glass bowl add cream (you can add more or less if you like your bisque thicker or thinner then the recipe calls for), add crab meat, and corn(still frozen).
  • Put a strainer over top of a small bowl. Take your frying pan with the vegetables and bacon and strain the grease from them into the bowl. Add 3 heaping tablespoons of corn starch to the grease and stir. After blended well add 1 tablespoon of zatarains crab boil to the grease/cornstarch mixture. (you can add more crab boil if you like yours spicier). Stir the crab boil into the mixture.
  • Add grease/cornstarch/crab boil mixture to the bowl with the crab, cream, and corn. Stir well.
  • Cover the bowl with foil and bake on 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Stir the mixture every 15 minutes, and remove the foil during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  • Optional garnish: sprinkle with pepper and add a little parsley.
