  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; then gradually whisk in the flour. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, whisking constantly, until a golden roux forms; set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Combine the onion, garlic, and celery and cook 1 minute. Add the Cajun seasoning to taste. Stir in the broth, corn, and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer, then pour in the milk, cream, and liquid crab boil. When the mixture begins to simmer, reduce heat to low and simmer 7 minutes. Stir in the roux, 1 tablespoon at a time, blending thoroughly. Continue to cook, on low heat, whisking until mixture thickens. Stir in crabmeat, green onions, and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer 6 to 8 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Wow! This was amazing. I've never made a soup before, so I followed the directions as closely as I could with a few minor additions and the result was spectacular. The bisque was so amazing t...

This was absolutely delicious and very quick & easy to make. Cooking time was more around 30 min start to finish. I was worried about the statement that it would taste salty so I didn't add ad...

nice recipe, but to make things easier, when you make the roux add the veggies directly to the roux; then the real cajan cooks use a darker roux although it does not have the thicke...

This was good BUT, between the salt in the Creole seasoning and the salt in the Old Bay seasoning and the salt in the Worchestershire... this was like a salt lick. Even my son who always adds ...
