While the kids like the corn with just butter and salt, my husband and I love our corn fried in a little bit of butter with some diced jalapenos thrown in. When I spied Jamie's recipe for Mexican-style corn I knew it was something worth trying. How can you go wrong with an ear of corn rolled in butter, then doused with cheese, and topped with diced jalapenos?
Adapted from Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Boil 4 heads of corn on the cob in salted, boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes with a lid on the pan. When tender, drain in a colander. Grate 3/4 cup of Parmesan cheese over the surface of a large serving platter or over 4 individual serving plates. Halve, seed, and finely chop 1 fresh red or green chile and sprinkle evenly over the cheese. Place a little pat of butter on each cob and brush over the corn to coat. When the butter has melted, roll each cob in the cheese and chile, so the flavors stick to the outside. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
Notes/Results: Loved it! One of the things I like best about this recipe is that it allows you to please everyone at the table. If you're serving picky eaters, children, or just people who like their corn plain then they can have it plain. Everyone else can top their corn however they please and all is good.
Also, I have a really fun story for you. While I was on my trip in Ohio visiting my friends and family I went to one of my favorite places in town: Poppee's Popcorn, also known as Jenny's Popcorn. When I walked into the store they asked me if my name was Kim. At first I was a little perplexed, trying to figure out how they knew me, but then I figured that I'd probably went to school with them. Then they pointed out that they'd recognized me because of my blog when I featured them on a blog post last summer (original post found here). Turns out they recognized my children from the picture in the blog post (picture shown below).
