First of all I’d like to say that this corn, while in the photo may not look super appetizing was the BOMB.COM!!! This was SO good, and I can’t wait to tell you all about this dish!!!
So I first actually ate something like this around 4 years ago when my sister and I went to New York City for the first (and only 😦 ) time. We were in SoHo and our cousins took us to this Cuban restaurant called Cafe Habana. Now from what I’ve heard is that Cuban food in Cuba at a resort isn’t good, so I wasn’t expecting the best outcome at this restaurant, but our cousins kept saying that this was hands down their favourite restaurant in NYC.
Enter the corn. What I have tried to replicate from this recipe is the corn that I had in NYC. It was literally the best food I had ever had in my life at that point, and I wanted more! So a week ago when I was looking for something different to make, the corn came to mind and I decided to google a recipe for it, which I was SO excited to find!!!
This corn has a bit of spicy kick, with some zesty lime, and cheesy goodness. It literally doesn’t get better than this.
Apologies for the messiness in the photo, but my friend and I made these and didn’t realize how messy they actually are to make!
You will need:
- Corn (obviously)
- Melted butter
- Cheese – in the recipe it calls for this Mexican cheese, but we don’t have any here, so I used Feta cheese, while my friend used Parmesan
- Cajun powder
This is quite easy to put together, so I will just outline the order of what to put on your corn first.
- Melted butter
- Roll it in cheese
- We did this one side at a time; so we fully coated everything on one side, ate it, and then did the other side, or else we would have everything all over ourselves!
- Sprinkle some salt
- Sprinkle some cajun (more is better)
- Squeeze some lime
Voila! You have the best corn you will ever eat in your life right in front of your eyes. I hope you enjoyed this one (I know I sure did), and until next time!
