Crab Bisque with Bacon and Corn + $68 Voucher Giveaway! – Delishar

I made this amazing crab bisque with The Alaska Guys‘s wild Alaskan Golden King Crab. I cannot rave enough about the quality of their seafood. Their wild caught salmon are all sashimi grade and does not have the fishy taste you get from farmed salmon. TAG carries 3 different types of salmon as mentioned in my previous post. TAG’s flagship store is now open for business! And to celebrate that, they would like to give Delishar’s readers a chance to win a S$68 in-store voucher! That would equate to about 1kg of Wild Alaskan Snow Crab, Wild Alaskan Salmon, or Wild Alaskan Cod! Please find details of the giveaway at the end of this post.

You can use it to make the salmon recipes shared on Delishar. Or redeem for some Alaskan Crab to make this delicious (I promise) dish that I’m about to share with you! The husband had 3 servings and was asking for more. The bisque was rich, has a deep intense flavour that was balanced out by the refreshing and sweet tasting chunky crab meat. This is a very hearty and comforting dish. I love the crunch of the sweet corn, and the smokiness of the bacon which added more depth to the dish. Serve it with some bread for a complete meal.

There is no need to reheat the crab legs prior as it will be reheated in the soup itself. Just thaw out the frozen Alaskan Crab, remove the shells using a pair of kitchen shears, and pull the meat apart into chunky pieces.

If you are around the area, don’t forget to drop by TAG’s store and take a look at their premium seafood selection.
