Seafood Bisque

This creamy soup takes full advantage of some frozen helpers: fully-cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp, imitation crab meat and frozen corn kernels.
  • cooking spray
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 c. chicken broth
  • 1 c. frozen corn kernels
  • 3 c. mixed seafood (I suggest a half and half combination of cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp and chopped imitation crab meat)
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large stockpot, heat cooking spray over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until tender, but not browned -- about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, corn kernels and seafood. Cook until corn and seafood are heated through -- about 10 minutes. Add cream and seasonings to taste. Allow to cook an additional 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
