Title: Cool'n spicy green tomato soup with crab and country ham
Yield: 4 Servings
1/2 c Vegetable oil
5 oz Country ham, julienned
2 md Onions, peeled and thinly
6 Whole peeled cloves garlic
2 Bay leaves
2 Jalapenos, stemmed and
4 Green anaheims
2 Green pasilla chilies
3 1/2 lb Firm, green tomatoes, cored
And cut into eighths
1 1/2 qt Chicken stock
3 tb Lemon juice
1 1/2 tb Hot sauce
1 lb Lump crabmeat, picked over
1 1/2 c Sour cream
1 c Fresh tomatoes, peeled,
Seeded and chopped
6 tb Capers
1/2 c Chopped green onions
In a large saucepan, heat the oil. When the oil is hot, add the ham,
pan-fry until crispy and golden, about 2 minutes. Remove the pan from
the heat and strain, reserving the oil and ham. Return the oil to the
pan and heat. Add the onions and saute until soft, about 3 to 4
minutes. Season the onions with salt and pepper. Add the garlic, bay
leaves and chilies, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and
stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil and
reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes or until the tomatoes soften.
Remove the bay leaves. Using a hand-held blender, puree the soup
until smooth. Chill the soup. Add the lemon juice and hot sauce.
Season with salt. In a mixing bowl, mix the crabmeat, sour cream,
tomatoes, capers and green onions together. Season the salad with
salt and pepper. To serve, ladle the soup into individual bowls and
garnish with the crab salad and crispy ham. The soup can be served
either chilled or warm.
