    small avocado, finely diced

  • 1

    cup fresh corn kernels, or frozen, thawed; about 1 large ear

  • 1

    medium tomato, seeded and finely diced

  • 1

    tablespoon lime juice

  • ¾

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1

    cup fresh corn kernels, or frozen, thawed; about 1 large ear

  • 1

    cup onion, chopped

  • 1

    cup yellow bell pepper, diced

  • cups peeled russet potato, diced

  • ¾

    teaspoon sweet or hot smoked paprika, plus more for garnish

  • 1

    cup dry sherry

  • 2

    cups seafood stock, or broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2

    cups low-fat milk

  • 12

    ounces crabmeat, drained if necessary

  • freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

1. To prepare relish: Combine avocado, corn, tomato, lime juice, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a small bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature while you prepare the bisque. 2. To prepare bisque: Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add corn, onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until the onion and pepper have softened, about 5 minutes. Add potato and paprika and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Add sherry and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the liquid has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. Add stock (or broth) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes. 3. Working in two batches, puree the vegetable mixture in a blender or food processor. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Return the puree to the saucepan; stir in milk, crab and remaining 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.
