Chilled corn soup with crab meat

Prep 10 mins

Cook 30 mins

Serves 4

Difficulty 1.5

A chilled soup is perfect for hot weather entertaining, and corn has only a short summer season, so make the most of it. Add crab meat to create something quite luxe.

2 tbsp olive oil

2 golden shallots, finely chopped

6 corn cobs, husks removed

1 litre good-quality chicken stock

Picked crab meat, basil leaves and extra-virgin olive oil, to serve

1. Heat butter and oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and stir occasionally until shallots is very tender, but not browned. Add corn and stock and bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and simmer until corn is tender (20 minutes). Season to taste and blend with a hand-held blender, then season to taste and refrigerate to chill.

3. Serve soup topped with crab meat, basil and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
