Step 1

1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 TBS oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; saute 3 minutes. Add corn, salt, and pepper; saute 3 minutes. Add 2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 6 minutes.

2. Place corn mixture and cream in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. (Alternatively, blend soup mixture in pan using an immersion blender).

3. Place peas in a small bowl; mash slightly with a fork. Stir in remaining 1 TBS oil, basil, and crab; serve over soup.
