Monosodium glutamate features in every eat-out crab and sweetcorn soup, so there’s no harm once-in-a-while in adding a dab when salting at home. In fact, its sodium levels are lower than that of our everyday table salt. I leave it with you.
In a bowl, mix the crab meat with the rice wine and a small pinch of salt.
Tip the creamed corn into a saucepan with the stock and bubble up, then stir in the crab mixture. Tip the cornflour mixture in next and stir it in. Allow to gently bubble until thickened, then stir in the oil and turn off the heat. Now taste, adding more salt if it needs it. Beat
