Dressed-Up Corn

This is a great dinner party crowd pleaser, and a very portable snack.  I recently went to Brickhouse, and the most memorable menu item for me was, alas, not their tacos, but their corn on a stick.  I went home and thought about the flavours I’d like to incorporate and came up with this easy, quick recipe, that looks stylish but is a cinch to make.

I served this at our dinner party last night, and everyone was eyeing who would get the last piece!

What you’ll need (serves 4 people):

  • 4 corn (each stalk cut in 2)
  • 1 tsp minced chili
  • 3 tsp garlic oil
  • 4 tbls mayonaise 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • sprinkle of pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup grated parmesan 
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley (or cilantro)

First, bring corn pieces to a boil in a large pot of water, and allow to simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes.

While the corn pieces are boiling, mince the chili to almost a paste-like consistency and combine with garlic oil.

Now add the mayo and salt / pepper, mix well.

Once the corn pieces have cooked, skewer each piece and coat evenly with the chili mayo.  Combine the chopped parsley (or cilantro) and grated parmesan in a shallow dish, and roll the mayo-covered corn over this.

The mayo will help adhere the cheese / herb crumbs to the corn.  


Bon Appetit!
