To get filmy and light strands of egg, the soup should be simmering. If the soup’s at a hard boil, the egg gets scrambled and rubbery.

1 tsp (5 mL) grated ginger root
2 green onions, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook ginger with half of green onions until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth, corn and creamed corn. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently so it does not scorch. Reduce heat to simmer. Stir in crab; cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in glass measuring cup, beat eggs with fork until yolks and whites are combined, but not frothy. Holding measuring cup about 6 inches (15 cm) above saucepan, slowly pour half of beaten egg into simmering soup in steady stream. Gently stir, then pour in remaining egg. Ladle into 8 soup bowls. Grind a little black pepper over each serving and sprinkle with remaining green onion. Garnish with lime wedge, if desired.
