- Remove 2 tablespoons of the andouille and set aside for garnish. Add the sasso along with the red bell pepper, shallots, celery, and jalapeno. Saute for about 5 minutes or until fragrant and vegetables are tender.
- Add the cream corn, chicken broth, Creole seasoning, and black pepper. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Next add in the sweet potatoes, stir well and let simmer 5 minutes, then add the milk and all but 2 tablespoons of the crabmeat, let simmer another 5 minutes or until mixture is heated through.Stir in 1 tablespoon of parsley. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
- In a small bowl toss the remaining parsley, crab, and andouille together and use as garnish.
- Ladle into bread bowl, individuals bowls, or even a soup tureen. Garnish with the reserved andouille/crab mixture. I allow me and any guests to use hot sauce as desired.
