Chorizo-Flavored Corn

In the summer, corn is so abundant and so cheap that it is very tempting to serve it every day. What is not so abundant, is the recipes that I use. I have the bad habit of always cooking corn the same way. As I was browsing the shelves at my grocery store for an item I needed, I was happy to find a pack of  sliced chorizo. Are you familiar with Chorizo??? It is a spicy salami-type meat that is from Spain, very similar to pepperoni. It is a favourite of mine. I don’t get to eat it a lot though, because it is not so popular in the USA, and it is hard to find.

Since I like to spice up my corn with red pepper flakes , i thought i could substitute the red pepper with sliced chorizo. And i was right to try, it was well received by my family;-)

Ingredients for 4-6:4 corn husks, 2 tbsp of butter, 8 slices of chorizo sliced in tiny strips, 1/2 sweet onion sliced thinly, 1/4 sea salt.

Clean up the husks and place the corn into the large round mold. Cover the mold with the octogonal silpat and microwave for 5 minutes. Remove the corn from the round mold and trim the kernels off the cobb. Set aside. In a large frying pan, melt 2 tbsp of butter. When the butter is melting, add the sliced onion and cook until it becomes translucent and golden. Add the chorizo and saute it for a few minutes.

Add the kernels and stir.

Cook the corn for a few minutes. To serve, spoon it on each plate and  sprinkle some sea salt, and some fresh chives for extra colour;-) C’est tout!!!

Bon Appetit and happy Cooking!!!
