Seasonal local food recipe No.164: Braised sweetcorn with lime & chilliPosted on October 5th, 2012 No comments
The chillies are ripening in Camel CSA’s polytunnel. One will be enough in this dish, as they’re quite hot.
Preparation: 5-10 minutes
Cooking: 5-10 minutes
4 corn cobs, cut into 3-4cm pieces
about 75g butter
2 tbsp olive oil
2x 5cm lengths lemongrass (optional),
2 mild red chillies, deseeded & finely chopped
zest & juice 1 lime
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
sea salt & ground black pepper
Heat the butter and oil in a large pan. Add the sweetcorn, lemongrass and chilli. Stir for 2 mins. Add the lime zest and juice, with 4 tbsp water.
Cover and cook for 6-8 mins, stirring every now and then, until the corn is cooked. Keep an eye on the liquid and top up a little if needed. Season to taste and stir in the coriander to serve.
