Cajun Crab Bisque

3 Tbs butter
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 Tbs sherry
3 Tbs all purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup whole milk
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 lb lump crabmeat
1 cup corn kernels
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning
1/2 tsp paprika

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook the onions until golden. Deglaze with sherry and reduce. Add the flour; stir until smooth and it turns a pale golden color.

Whisk in the chicken broth, stirring constantly 
to avoid lumps. Mix in the milk, half-and-half, salt, crabmeat, corn, Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning and paprika.

Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue whisking as soup comes to a simmer. Allow the bisque to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly thickened. Do not boil.

Serves 4
