Happy Monday! I'm sad this is not another three day weekend, but such is life. I've spent the weekend eating out and shopping with great friends, salsa dancing, swimming laps in the pool and cooking. I'll share those recipes with you later, but for today, let's talk about corn.
I love corn. Fresh, frozen, even canned. I like it in soups, salads, or simply boiled.
Below is my version of Mexican corn. I do not claim this to be authentic. It's just something I put together. Since I don't have a grill, I used my panini maker.
bourbon smoked paprika
salt & pepper
lime juice, plus extra lime wedges
1. Heat your panini maker.
2. Rub the corn with olive oil and paprika. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Cook the corn in the panini maker, rotating occasionally until it has softened and you can see "grilled marks."
4. Drizzle the corn with lime juice, and sprinkle with feta and cilantro. Serve with additional lime wedges.
This was freaking amazing!!! I had a hard time eating only one of these at a time. Clearly, the feta and cilantro fall off as you eat the corn, so make sure to have plenty of napkins available: this is one messy dish. Also, have extra feta and cilantro to keep on adding to your corn as you make your way around the cob.
Have you ever had or made Mexican corn? What technique do you use?
