Asian Style Cream Corn Soup

Did everyone have a great weekend? We did quite a bit of Spring cleaning, and I’ve decided instead of hiring the cleaning crew once a month, I will clean a part of the house each day, and just have the professionals work their magic on a quarterly basis.  This way we should save some money to pay for the impossibly high gasoline, and I can further improve my domestic skills! Anyway, since we still have quite a bit of left over from Sunday night’s dinner, today I hand shredded the Rotisserie chicken to make tacos, and decided to make this easy and delicious soup. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1  canned creamed corn
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • Black or white pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoon diced imitation crab
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Preparation:

1. Bring the broth or stock to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the creamed corn and bring back to a boil (about 3 minutes).
2. Stir in the salt, sugar, white pepper, rice wine or sherry and imitation crab meat. Cook for about 2 minutes to bring back to a boil again. Turn off the stove.
3. Immediately pour the egg into the soup in a steady stream, and quickly stir in a clockwise direction until they form thin shreds.
4. Dash of black pepper for taste. Voila!

  1. Oh wow I love when you put imitation crab! That’s why I love reading food blog… I get great idea from others. 🙂 I’m accumulating food I want to cook… oh boy but they are all in my folder and I’ll try one by one. This one no doubt will go to my file. Hopefully I can try soon since all I need is the can of creamed corn. Thank you as always!

      Trinity LOVES imitation crabs, so I decided to cut some up into little pieces and added them into the soup, it turned out yummy! I should also start printing recipes I want to try so dinner preparation can get more organized. Right now I find myself scrambling around 5:30pm trying to find new recipes to cook for the night, not the most relaxing way to start the evening right…
