Ingredients

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon seafood soup base
  • 1 cup crab meat, flaked
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup imitation crab, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • green onions, chopped

Instructions

  • In a pot over medium heat, combine chicken broth and seafood base and bring to a boil, stirring until seafood base is dissolved.
  • Add crab meat, corn, and imitation crab. Continue to cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a bowl, combine cornstarch and water and stir until smooth.
  • Lower heat and add cornstarch mixture, whisking vigorously to prevent lumps. Return to a boil for about 1 to 2 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Break the egg into the pot and with a fork, stir until the egg is dispersed. Continue to cook for 1 minute or until the egg is set.
  • Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with green onions. Serve hot.

Notes

  • I added imitation crab for a boost of color and to resemble the Knorr crab and corn soup version.
  • You can use creamed corn instead of corn kernels, but adjust the amount of cornstarch slurry as the it makes the soup thick and creamy.
  • If you can't find seafood soup base, substitute shrimp bouillon cubes.
