In an attempt to eat better and cook more in between my travels, I picked up some veggies and protein at Safeway today. With chicken thighs and Tupperware to meal prep in my Disney princesses reusable bag (Disney certified Travel Agent, by the way), I also picked up a pack of seven ears of corn for $5. I love corn. I usually don’t need anything on it. But today, I wanted to know how hard it was to make street corn.
For convenience, Pinterest is a fast and easy way to find the answer – with pictures! Forgive me, Pinner, I didn’t save your post but your posting was incredibly helpful. I didn’t have everything stocked at home that the recipe called for so I made some modifications. Here’s what I did, cooking for one.
3 ears of corn
2 tbsp of mayo
Half a lime
Start boiling a pot of water for your corn
Place corn in boiling hot water
In a small bowl, mix mayo, lime juice, chili powder and garlic salt. Mind you, I eye-balled some measurements. Taste then modify to your liking.
The corn is done when the yellow color is more intense and the kernels are plumper.
Remove the corn from the pot. Use a strainer if necessary to remove excess water before plating.
Place cobs on your plate
Drizzle with mayo and lime mixture
Top with feta crumbles
Sprinkle with paprika
This is the street corn from Calistoga Inn Restaurant & Brewery from last weekend. I think mine is better. 😘
