Roasted Corn with Manchego & Lime

What a simple wonderful side dish! With corn in its seasonal prime, now is the time to create and serve this favorite summertime staple alongside local spiced shrimp!

  • Roast corn in husk (450 degrees, 15 minutes), Set aside to cool
  • Shuck corn (assistance provided by my 4 legged friend, Basil)
  • Slice corn off of cob.
  • Saute the kernels and add a few more easy ingredients (olive oil, butter, salt, pepper, jalapenos, crushed red pepper, lime, chives, Manchego cheese). Find detailed steps under Roasted Corn with Manchego & Lime at Epicurious.
Take time to visit a local farm or farmers market this week and fill up on sweet, juicy, local corn. Visit Local Harvest to find a market in your neighborhood.

E.A.T. Local E.A.T. well
