Crabmeat and Sweetcorn

This can be made with either frozen and defrosted, tinned or fresh crab meat - the choice is yours.

If you are using a whole crab, then you can use the shell to make stock

If you're using tinned or frozen crab, then you can use a fish stock cube, water or chicken stock as your base.



Crabmeat and Sweetcorn Soup

Oil for frying
2 spring onions (scallions) sliced
1/2 inch (1cm) piece fresh ginger - finely grated
2 pints (1.2l) stock - see above
2 tbspns rice wine or dry sherry
1 tspn salt
1 tspn sugar
2 tspns cornflour
10 oz (275) tinned or frozen sweetcorn
1 crab with meat extracted or 6 oz (175g) frozen or tinned crab meat
1 egg beaten with 1 tspn sesame oil
Finely Shredded spring onion (scallion) to garnish

Mix the cornflour to a smooth paste with 2 tspns water.

Heat the oil in a large pan and quickly fry the spring onions and ginger.

Add the stock, rice wine or sherry, salt and sugar and bring to the boil. Simmer for 1 minute.

Take the pan off the heat and add the cornflour paste. Stir and simmer for a further minute.

Add the sweetcorn and crab and heat through.

Slowly pour in the beaten egg whilst stirring - this will make the 'threads' that you see in Chinese Restaurant soups.

Serve and garnish with the shredded spring onion.
