If you are using live crabs, cook and pick the meat in advance. You can order ready-to-eat seafood for this recipe.

Bring the water to the boil.

Stir in the sweet corn and boil for 5 minutes.

Add the chicken stock. When the mixture starts boiling again, add the white wine and sesame oil.

Crack and beat the eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Gradually add it to the soup while stirring continuously. Cook for 1 minute.

Sprinkle with a little fresh parsley then serve.
