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!!!
