Corn Soccotash

Fresh corn-on-the-cob is one of my favourite things about this time of year.  This recipe, from The Chew a few years ago, is so good I haven’t changed it one bit. I’ve had it 3 times in the past two weeks.  First, on top of nachos with melted cheese, next paired with seared scallops, and finally I made the leftovers into a pasta and added some grated fresh parmesan cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound  bacon (diced)- I’m thinking this would be good with turkey bacon as well, let me know if you try it!
  • 4 ears fresh corn (cut off the cob)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • zest of 1 lime
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Heat a large pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add the bacon and cook until crisp (5-8 minutes).
  • Add the corn with a pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally until the corn softens and starts to get some color (about 5 minutes).
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the tomatoes, seasoning the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold in the lime zest and add torn cilantro leaves.

  1. Hello I was just looking at your site and just wanted to ask you a quick questions
    how many new sales do you think you would gain if you had a video commercial on the front page of google for EVERY search term related to to your service or product??
    yep! a video commercial showing for every possible term people could type into google to find what you sell or the service you provide…

    take a look at this video and case study I am sure you will be blown away by the results
    this works if you sell products online or run a service in a local area.
