    • RELISH
    • 1 small avocado, finely diced
    • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
    • 1 medium tomato, seeded, finely diced
    • 1 Tbsp lime juice
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • BISQUE
    • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
    • 1 cup chopped onions
    • 1 cup diced yellow bell peppers
    • 1-1/2 cups diced peeled russet potatoes
    • 3/4 tsp paprika + extra for garnish
    • 1 cup dry sherry
    • 2 cups seafood stock or low-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 cups 2% milk
    • (12 oz) Frozen or Canned crabmeat, drained if necessary
    • 1/2 tsp salt


    1. To Prepare Relish:
    2. Combine avocado, corn, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl; toss to coat. Set aside and let stand at room temperature while you prepare the bisque.
    3. To Prepare Bisque:
    4. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add corn, onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring often, until the onion and pepper have softened, about 5 minutes. Add in the potato and paprika; cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Add in sherry and cook, scraping up any browned bits until liquid has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Add in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes.
    5. Working in two batches, puree the vegetable mixture in a blender or food processor. Return puree to saucepan; stir in milk, crab and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve each portion of bisque with about 1/4 cup relish; sprinkle with additional paprika, if desired.
