  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 large celery stalk, minced
  • Cajun seasoning to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon liquid shrimp and crab boil seasoning
  • 1 pound fresh lump crabmeat
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • Additional chopped green onions
  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.
