This bisque is filled with delicious crab. This is a fantastic recipe I learned how to cook while living in the New Orleans area. It is creamy seafood goodness with a little kick of Cajun spices.
This bisque is filled with crab. It is warm, creamy and has a tiny kick. Don’t be afraid of the Cajun seasoning and the little bit of red pepper. It is not hot or spicy but has a fantastic flavor. All of my kids have always eaten this Cajun Corn & Crab Bisque, but never complained about the Cajun or red pepper in it. We all love this Cajun Corn & Crab Bisque so much; we decided to have seafood on Christmas day this past year and included this soup. This was the first year having seafood on Christmas. We usually eat ham and or turkey which we also have for Thanksgiving. Everyone enjoyed the menu change this past Christmas. They have already requested seafood again next year. I hope you enjoy this Cajun Corn & Crab Bisque.
Have you ever tried Corn & Crab Bisque?
If you are like me and cannot get fresh crab easily in your area, try Sam’s Club. I was pretty impressed with this fresh crab I purchased there.
