Crab and Corn Quick Stew

This is the Crab and Corn Quick Stew recipe.

  • Prep: 30 min
  • Cooking: 13 min - 16 min
Yields 4 - 6 servings


  • Salt
  • 1 seafood seasoning packaged (sufficient for the pot)
  • 1 celery stalk chopped
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) smoked sausage cut into pieces
  • 2 cobs corn broken in half
  • 1 to 2 uncooked crabs cleaned and split
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) prawns
  • 1/2 lb (225 g) shrimp
  • Butter


Fill a big stockpot half full of water and boil on high heat. Add about 1/4 cup salt per gallon of water. Add seafood seasoning and celery.

When water boils, add sausages and boil 5 to 6 minutes. Next, add corn, crabs and prawns and boil 5 to 6 minutes more. Make sure everything is submerged (add more boiling water to cover, if necessary). Add shrimp and cook 3 to 4 minutes more.

Drain in a big colander (this becomes your serving vessel). Or put in a bowl and serve. Or, be very traditional and dump everything on a newspaper-lined wooden table and it's everyone for himself!

Lots of crusty bread (and chunks of Canadian cheese, of course) on the side; also little tubs of melted butter for dipping...
