Crab Corn Chowder

I created this when I wanted to get creative with some imitation crab that we had. This is so delicious! It's smooth, warm, comforting and you can't have just one bowl. My son hates peas but he loved them in this! Serve it with warm garlic bread.

Crab Corn Chowder

  • 1 large package of flaked imitation crab meat (or real)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 6 cups milk
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tsp salt (add 1/2 tsp at a time until it reaches your desires saltiness)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • ground pepper

Heat large saucepan to medium high. Melt all of butter then add green onions. Simmer for a couple of minutes until tender. Sprinkle over 1/4 cup of flour. Stir. Slowly add 1 cup milk and stir. Add remaining flour and stir. Add remaining milk and whipping cream - continue stirring until it's smooth and free of lumps. You can add more flour to thicken if needed. Flake crab meat and add to pot. Be careful with the salt adding 1/2 tsp at a time until it reaches your desire level of saltiness. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low for 10 minutes. Serve hot.
